Light Duty Work Restrictions and Your Employer
Written by our workers’ compensation lawyers in Virginia Beach
If you are placed on light duty, we recommend contacting a workers’ compensation lawyer. Your Employer may or may not accommodate those restrictions, and there are certain obligations you may need to satisfy.
Sometimes injured workers in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Hampton Roads can be pushed for an early return to work. Employers may also say it has “light duty” available but in reality the work falls outside the injured worker’s light duty restrictions.
If your employer, the insurance company or its nurse case manager are asking for a return to work before you or your doctor feel you are ready, you need to know how to handle the situation says KRS Law workers’ compensation lawyer Adam Shall.
For nearly 15 years, our KRS Law workers’ compensation lawyers have helped injured workers navigate the demands of employers and insurance companies in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and all of Hampton Roads.
