What to Do if Your Employer Exceeds Your Medical Restrictions

We are committed to representing clients in Des Moines and throughout the state of Iowa who have been injured at work.

Has Your Employer Exceeded Your Medical Restrictions?

Some employers will disregard restrictions imposed by the doctors they have selected to care for their injured employees. The lawyers at Lawyer, Dougherty, Palmer & Flansburg, P.L.C., will help by contacting the employers or their insurance carriers to remind them of their obligation to provide proper care to their injured employees, including the obligation to respect the restrictions of the treating doctor.

If the employer says it cannot provide light duty after the restrictions are honored, then the employee should be placed on temporary weekly workers' compensation benefits, until his or her doctor releases him or her to return to work, with or without permanent restrictions.

Whether you have suffered a neck, back, shoulder, leg, knee, ankle, foot or head injury, we will guide you through the workers' compensation process and vigorously advocate for your rights.
