I tripped on a chair mat at work. It was an accident. There is video showing this that my foot got caught on the mat. She asked a nurse if it could be due to my diabetes and the nurse suggested I have numb feet. I have an endocrinologist and I do not have numb feet. She harassed me with text messages and also when I just returned to work I was given an interview which asked if I checked with my endocrinologist about this. I had fallen down some stairs at the courthouse earlier this year but did not go to the hospital nor file any claims or go to the dr. She did pay my workers comp but I have a list printed of things that only apply to me.
I have moved your question to the workers compensation section.
answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship.
If you filed a workers compensation claim and are having issues with your employer challenging the claim, you would need a workers compensation attorney. If you feel as though your employer is retaliating against you because you filed a workers compensation, you would need to contact an employment law attorney. Some will offer a free initial consultation.

Your employee might be “regarding you” as being disabled in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act and comparable state law or discriminating against you because of a disability. I would suggest you talk to an employment lawyer versed in workers’ compensation a disability law as you have two overlapping issues.
