Return to Work Issues
Protecting Your Rights Through Workers' Compensation in Des Moines
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.
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)
