's CompNewsNetwork – Ohio Supremes Say Disabled Drug Dealing Cop was Fully Employed.

Do you think drug dealing is a gainful employment?
Whatever you do while receiving your Work Comp benefits please do not deal drugs.


What if you are injured and have permanent restrictions.

Do I have to try the job that Workers’ Compensation offers me?

You do if you want to increase the value of your settlement.

You need to see if you can perform the job.

If you cannot do the job, then you will have to return to your doctor and explain what keeps you from working the job.

This puts you in the position to argue the permanent restriction prevents you from your past job and the new job offered to you.

This means either that you cannot do any job or only a job that is even more restrictive.

You must make a good faith effort.

That means at least trying the job for a day.

Questions about your Work Comp settlement? Feel free to call Illinois Workers’ Compensation Attorney Dirk May at 309-827-4371.

You may be entitled to a Workers’ Compensation check for the rest of your life if you cannot work due to your work injury. You must show that your restrictions keep you from working any job.

There are several ways to show that your restrictions keep you from working any job. One way is if your doctor provides an opinion that you cannot work due to your restrictions. Another way is if you have a Vocational Expert who provides the opinion that you are unable to work based on your age, education, experience and medical restrictions. Yet another way is conduct a job search that results in your inability to find a job.

If you have serious restrictions and you do not think you can work any job, please feel free to call me to discuss your case.
