We Work With Your Doctor To Protect Your Health
If you feel like you are ready to return to work and your doctor agrees, he or she will have to sign a release. Your doctor may also sign a release for you to return to work to modified duties. This can include restrictions on lifting, bending, reaching or driving.
When your doctor signs a release, your employer has to provide a job for you honoring those restrictions. If there are parts of the job that you cannot do, your doctor can remove you from work until your employer makes the reasonable accommodations.
Our attorneys’ main concerns are getting you the workers’ comp benefits you need and protecting your safety. If your employer is trying to force you to do work you are not capable of doing, we can step in and protect your rights. We will work closely with your doctor to make sure you will not be put into any dangerous situations.
