It appears your husband's main problem is the doctors have put him on light duty work. If so, the employer can offer him a light duty position. If the position is within the work restrictions set by the doctors, then he is obligated to do the light duty work. He needs to speak to an experienced workers compensation lawyer here in Virginia.See question

I agree with the other answers. However, it will not be easy to get an attorney. This is so because you are not trying to "win" something you are trying not to "lose" by paying back an overpayment. Thus, an attorney would need to be paid up front to take your overpayment case.See question
I have been avoiding the application process for quite sometime now. It's not something I wish to drag out and fight over. A mental disability is not something to be proud of and I really don't know if I can stand one more person telling me I'm ...

I am LPN. I lifted heavy patient and hurt left shoulder. I did not report it that day. A couple of weeks later it was worse and I went to a doctor. Will my claim be denied?
It is not good that you did not report the incident right away. Most companies require that accidents be reported right away. There is a practical reason. How does the company know you injured the left shoulder at work and not playing a sport or working in your yard? It would be helpful if you have a witness to the injury or if you complained to someone at your place of employment shortly after your injury. The Workers Compensation Act does require that you notify the employer within 30 days of the accident. It is essential that your doctor state the incident "caused" your left shoulder injury. The doctor can do this if you gave the doctor a good "history of your injury" at the time of the accident. You do need to contact an experienced workers compensation lawyer before you give the insurance company a recorded statement.See question
I contacted workers compensation but my clain was denied.
You will have a problem. The insurance company may well respond saying it is not responsible for a force of nature. It may be the placement of the construction site made your job more risky. The insurance company will be responsible if your employment was an additional risk. You need to contact an experienced workers compensation lawyer about this problem.See question
i did not feel anything at work. i did not feel anything until next day when I got out of bed.
It will be difficult to get workers compensation for this injury. This is so because you did not report any pain or discomfort at the time of the injury. Also, it may be very difficult for a doctor to relate your back injury to this incident. You have two (2) years from the date of this incident to file a claim with the Virginia Workers Compensation Commission. You did need to report this specific injury to your employer within 30 days of the incident. I base this opinion on 35 years of doing Virginia Workers Compensation Claims and after 1,000 hearings.See question

You may have a problem. Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA) for 2016 was $1130 a month. You would have to have enough medical expenses each and every month in 2016 to bring your earnings below $1130 per month for each month. Any medical expenses paid by insurance or other third parties are not counted as medical deductions.See question
Have a lot of illnesses diabetes,HBP, cholesterol, foot problems and lower back problems can I file for SS disability after already receiving early retirement and if I can would a lawyer help me to file? I heard that if u r already receiving benef...
Yes, you can file for Social Security Disability since you are not at full retirement age. Since you are receiving Early Retirement benefits, you are correct in saying many lawyers will NOT take your disability case. This is so because you are already receiving about 80% of your benefits and you are only trying to get an additional 20% of your benefits. Thus, the retroactive benefits you will receive (if successful) may not be large enough for an attorney to take your case. However, you should check and some attorney may take your case.See question
