Workers' Compensation in Des Moines
Protecting Your Rights Against Return to Work Issues
Returning to work after your claim is accepted or you have successfully received
workers' compensation benefits can be confusing and a bit stressful at first. After your claim
has been approved, your employer will likely make an effort to help you
return to work in some capacity, if you are able to. Your employer is
required to offer you some type of work which is suitable for any limitations
you may have, but this may not always work for you. If you are having
any issues with returning to work, turn to a Des Moines workers' compensation
lawyer from King Law, PLLC.
Representing Return to Work Disputes
Restricted duties are some type of assignment which is given to you until
you have healed enough to take over your previous job. However, if the
temporary position or duty which is offered to you does not work for you,
they must respect other factors in addition to your physical restrictions.
If your employer is giving you a hard time about returning to work or
not caring for the appropriate considerations, you may need to involve a lawyer.
- A few examples of the factors which must be considered include:
- Your medical plan and doctor's appointments
- Your financial needs to care for your family
- Your ability to get from home to work (location)
