Re: need some back pain remedies please help

Thankfully, I have never dealt with workmen's comp, but I have been around these boards long enough to know that the best thing you can do for yourself is find an attorney who specializes in w/c. Otherwise, they will walk all over you and you will find yourself getting worse and worse. I hope someone comes along soon who can give you some pointers and better advise.

Re: need some back pain remedies please help

get a new ATTORNEY ASAP!!!!!!!!!!! go to as many as you need to until you find one that will fight for you! you can switch-the sooner the better b/c your current attorney will try to lay claim to doing as much work as possible and take your money when you DO decide to settle! and on that note DO NOT SETTLE MEDICAL or Wages. you have approx. 1 to 1/1/2 yrs. to collect wages-medical is forever until your settle-they cannot make you, but call up the work comp and say you want a second opinion which you are entitled to. they will drag things out, but the most important things now are #1-dismiss, in writing with date, your current attorney. send it certified mail. #2-look for a new attorney and get them moving and pressuring the work comp people to get another appoinment because they are denying you care which they "can't" do, by law, but since the law is vague at best, they don't care if eventually they get penalized. they are a big company-its not skin off their nose. GOOD LUCK and DO NOT SETTLE (unless your spouse has insurance for you that covers a pre-existing condition).

Bernie: Try alternating ice and heat. You can buy the gel packs at Wal-
Mart. Advil works great, also.

It takes awhile to get into see a doctor and be approved by WC. Meantime, they have to let you see a doctor of your own choice.
