    Have you obtained a second opinion?
    Not everything that makes you mad, sad or uncomfortable is legally actionable.

    I am not now nor ever was an attorney.

    Any statements I make are based purely upon my personal experiences and research which may or may not be accurate in a court of law.

      If it becomes necessary, you can consult with a WC attorney if you are being required to return to work before you are medically able.
      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

          So they have you doing light duty that two doctors have approved you to perform? Hiring a lawyer isn't going to change that at all. If you can't do the tasks they ask of you, you need to go back and tell the doctor this. As long as the tasks are within the restrictions and you can preform them one handed, WC is not going to pay for you to be off work.

          You can't be fired for hiring a lawyer if you choose to do so.
          I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.
