Returning to work after an injury
After you have recovered from a workplace injury and you are ready to return to work, many questions can arise, such as:
- Can you work if you have restrictions?
- What if you disagree with the doctor’s recommendation about returning to work?
- What if your employer offers you a modified job or alternative job?
- What if your employer does not offer you a job?
- What happens if your doctor says you cannot ever return to the same job?
- What if you experience retaliation from your employer for filing a workers’ comp claim?

Vocational rehabilitation is the term used for a process developed to assist injured workers with returning to their former job or other form of employment. The rehabilitation may require several different healthcare professionals to assist with physical, psychological or other impairments. Vocational rehabilitation can deal with all types of injuries and disabilities. Some of the services you may be entitled to receive include:
Payment for these services may be made by your employer, the workers’ compensation insurer, the State of California or a combination of these three sources as part of your workers’ compensation benefits. Let an attorney at Tous Law Group review your individual circumstances and help you obtain the rehabilitative services you need.
