Should I go back to work if my employer offers me a light duty job?

You should not just rush back to work.  It is best to consult an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to discuss your rights prior to returning to light duty work.  There are legal ramifications of returning to work following your injury, and you don’t want to do something that will be harmful to your workers’ compensation claim.  Although you ultimately will probably need to go try the job, it is important that the position be presented to you in a legally sufficient manner.  An experienced workers’ compensation attorney can tell you if the job has been offered properly, and will go over what can and will occur once you attempt the job.
