Re: Severe Pain
Yes, I was in the same shape as you with the severe pain and muscle spasms. At times the thought went through my mind that life was not worth living if I had to spend the rest of it using crutches to get around and seeing the look on my husband and daughters faces when I would cry out in pain because I made the wrong move. My first question to you is...have you talked with an attorney? Workman's Comp sends you to their doctors who are paid to send you back to work as soon as possible so they won't have to continue paying you benefits. An attorney should examine your employer's panel of physicians and if it isn't a legal panel he can make them approve a physician of your choice. That's what happened in my case anyway. Sounds like you really need an attorney. Hang in there and don't let Workman's Comp push you around. As an injured employee, you have rights. They won't tell you that. They are only looking out for your employer, no matter how "nice" they talk to you. There are attorneys out there that will take your case and only get money if you get money. My attorney is like that and when it's all over and the case is settled, he gets 1/4 of what I settle for. Let me know how it goes.
