As part of the Pennsylvania workers’ comp process, you can be sure you’ll be asked to participate in an Independent Medical Examination or IME. This is a medical examination, performed by a physician that is hired by your employer’s insurance company.
Often times, this results in the company doctor stating that you can return to work. You’ll likely be given the option to resume work without restrictions or you’ll be offered a “light-duty” job. Here are some things you can and should do if you disagree with the doctor’s decision:
If you’ve been offered a “light-duty” job, it means it is a job your doctor says you can perform with your medical restrictions. For example, instead of doing heavy labor, you may be put on a desk job until your injuries improve. If this light-duty job pays less than what you made before you were injured, you would be entitled to receive partial disability payments.
There are times a doctor releases an injured worker to light-duty work but the employer doesn’t have a light-duty job available. In this case, you can continue to receive your workers’ compensation payments.
When you’re injured on the job, no matter what your profession or cause, you’re likely dealing with a stack of confusing legal forms, insurance companies and an employer who is trying to get you back to work as soon as possible, even if it is not in the best interest of your long-term health.
