Default ADA Accommodations for back to work...

I would like to know if anyone has pursued the ADA for a return to work.

I see a lot of posts here where people return to work and there doesnt seem to be any retaliation toward the employee while you were recovering from your injury.
i wasnt as lucky...

Default ADA Definitions - Disability & TBI

Are TBIs disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act?

" The ADA does not contain a list of medical conditions that constitute disabilities. Instead, the ADA has a general definition of disability that each person must meet. Therefore, some people with TBI will meet the criteria for having a disability under the ADA and some will not. A person has a disability if he/she has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, a record of such an impairment, or is regarded as having such an impairment. For more information about how to determine whether a person has a disability under the ADA, visit www.eeoc.gov/policy/docs/902cm.html."
