Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney – I have been injured at work in Savannah, what can I do if my employer is not giving me light duty work per my doctor’s orders?

Unfortunately, not all employers are concerned about their workers and will attempt to have the worker do full duty or heavy work even though the doctor has put them on light duty or restricted duty work. In these cases, you as the worker must advise your employer that you cannot do the work he is requesting. If the employer can not provide you work within your restrictions, then he cannot accommodate your work restrictions and either needs to get another job for you to do, or send you home.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
