What To Do When A Work Injury Requires Retraining

After being injured on the job, many workers are required to take long-term absences from the workplace. In some instances, workers may be unable to return to their original jobs because their injuries have rendered them unable to perform their prior duties.

In Wisconsin and Minnesota, we help individuals affected by long-term injuries and permanent disabilities pursue workers' compensation benefits that can include retraining and reassignment. At Fitzpatrick, Skemp & Associates, LLC, we can guide you through the claims process and determine if you meet the criteria for rehabilitation and retraining benefits that may help you return to your job.

Some options include:

  • Restoration to your former job or a similar position within the company
  • Returning you to an alternative job in another area or field that produces a comparable salary to what you would have earned if the injury or disability had not occurred
