Re: New and need some adivse!!!
He not only can apply for worker's comp, he should apply for it. He might eventually be unable to use his hands/wrist at all if he doesn't get intensive rehab for it now. WC will compensate him for the medical expenses and some of his wages if he must be off work until he's better.
IMO, applying for permanent disability is far premature and would be a drain on the system. Your husband is only disabled in as far as he refuses to pay attention to this injury.
If it should happen that the WC doctor says he can no longer do this particular dough-making job, your DH should then apply for PA vocational rehabilitation, which will retrain him for a job he can do.
There is a lot of help out there for him. Talk him into getting it. Good luck!
(BTW... is the period key on your keyboard working? A little punctuation goes a long way toward easier to read posts.)
