If you have light duty restrictions in a Mississippi workers compensation case, the first thing you need to do is ask the employer to accommodate you so you can get back to work and make full wages. Many people have concerns about this advice because they are worried about getting hurt again at work or that the employer will not be nice to them about it. The problem is if you don’t try, you won’t be entitled to workers compensation benefits. The best bet is to let the employer say no. Force the employer to be the bad guy by not accommodating you. Then you will have an argument that your temporary disability benefits should resume or continue.
