Here is a brief explaination of my situation.
Injured on the job (knee injury) in sept 14'. Had surgery in December 14'. Completed physical therapy and work hardening.
Had another Mri show complications and fluid and inflammation in bone.
I was returned to work in a completely different position than my previous one at pretty much half the pay. I was told this is my permanent position. Was just sent to ime while current dr suggests procedure.
Question I have is, am I able to receive wage loss benefits if the ime says I can return to full duty, or do some restrictions still need to be present?
Ideally I want to just return to my previous job but it's no longer available. I wouldn't be in any lower paying job of I wasn't injured.
What are my next steps? Contact a lawyer, or work my way up from the bottom once again?
Thanks for the help
