Returning to Work in Pennsylvania
Philadelphia Workers’ Comp Lawyers
After an accident on the job leaves you injured, it is not always clear what to do or what happens when you are ready to return to work. If you are considering going back to work, it is still important that your rights are protected and that your employer cannot take advantage of your situation.
Your employer may invite you back to perform light duty work that meets criteria that is agreed upon by you and your doctor. The failure to accept a job that is doctor-approved may result in the termination of lost wage benefits, and it is in your best interest to have a lawyer provide the experienced representation that you need.
At Martin Law, our attorneys provide diligent and knowledgeable protection for the rights of people who have been injured in Philadelphia and throughout the state of Pennsylvania. Our firm has helped thousands of employees recover workers’ compensation benefits. Call for a free initial consultation at 215.587.8400.
Learn About Returning to Work in Pennsylvania
The jobs and scope of work that you are able to perform will be based upon your disability rating and the recovery that you are making from your injuries. When an employer has invited you back to do light duty work and that work is considered restricted, it is important that you are honest and upfront about those restrictions with your employer.
Our firm can write to the employer or the insurance adjuster about the situation. It is not wise to go ahead and do the work, since it will only hurt your credibility and may lead to a setback in the recovery process.
