What Choices Do You Face Now?
The challenges and choices you face depend a lot on the facts of your particular case. Our attorneys handle the full range of issues, including:
- Medical condition — Does your doctor say you’re ready to go back to work? If you don’t agree with that doctor’s opinion, you have a right to be evaluated by another doctor called a qualified medical evaluator (QME).
- Type of work — Are you able to do your old job? If not, what types of work are available to you?
- Total disability — If you aren’t able to go back to work at all, are you eligible for permanent total disability benefits?
- Job displacement — If your employer does not offer you work, you have certain rights to get job placement benefits through the state.
In short, there are many factors to consider when going back to work. We can provide the guidance and advocacy you need under California law to protect your rights and interests during this difficult and stressful time.
