    Yes, your employer would absolutely be responsible for any additional injuries you sustain as a result of the restricted duty work you are now performing. Under the Workers Compensation Act, both the employer and the employee must act in good faith with regard to the restricted duty job offer. If you feel the employer is pushing you too hard or not following the restrictions the doctor imposed, they would not be acting in good faith. If you have not already done so, you should immediately contact an experienced workers compensation attorney for help - believe me your employer has an attorney telling them how to proceed - you need someone in your corner as well! Best of luck!

    Yes, you can and should refuse to allow the nurse case manager to speak with your doctor and accompany you to office visits. Would you want the insurance company to be in the room at each and every office visit urging your doctor to get you back to work? Certainly not. The nurse case manager is essentially a representative from the insurance company. He or she will take notes, report to the insurance company following every appointment and often will discuss your condition with the doctor even outside your presence. You should contact an experienced workers compensation attorney and they will instruct the nurse manager that al communication should go through your attorney's office. An experienced attorney deals with these issues everyday which is why you should have one of us in your corner handling these issues while you work on getting better. Best of luck!
