    If the employer is unable to accommodate your restrictions for any reason, you're entitled to wage loss benefits.
    Here's a good thread that explains how to find a good lawyer.

    So I had surgery on my broken femur and I am scheduled to have surgery on my knee mid September. I am in contact with my case manager at Liberty and whatever I need she approves. I guess I have been lucky so far. Thank you for the link you provided. I have a feeling I will need that info before this is over. Thanx Tony

    Does anyone know a good worker's compensation attorney in WV? I have called some and they no longer take comp cases. I've filled out things on line to message attorneys. I dont want to take the final steps of my case on alone. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Be careful filling out anything on line - do not disclose personal information about yourself or case - keep it general.
    State your injury and the circumstances of employment, like this "my injury is Broken Femoral Head, 5 Fractures Pelvis Etc. - employer fails to accommodate restrictions" your assistance would be appreciated.
    And that's it, if they're interested in your claim, they'll make an appointment and have you in for a consultation.

    Law firm web site contact forms typically go straight to the lawyer, or to his intake person. You need to give them enough info about your case to pique their interest. For instance, let them know whether your case is denied or accepted, and mention why you are contacting them- send something like "My multiple fractures with surgery case is accepted and the insurance company is asking me if I want to settle. I am not sure what I should do."
    The North Carolina Court of Appeals has held that "In contested Workers' Compensation cases today, access to competent legal counsel is a virtual necessity." Church v. Baxter Travenol Labs, Inc., and American Motorists Insurance Company, 104 N.C. App. 411, 416 (1991).
