I was an employee of Homeland for 23 years, I filed a workmans comp claim for carpal tunnel last year and just had the first surgery last month. We still have not recieved any weekly compensation the attorney says they say there is a break down in the adjusters office. Has anyone else ran into this prob?
I am scheduled for hand and elbow surgery Monday and also have rotator cuff surgery planned for the near future.
.mean time due to other health complications (high blood pressure) I have been unable to work at homeland for 1 year. In a couple of weeks I will be terminated from that job because you are only allowed to be off for one year. Also I have almost total stiffness in my right ankle and have trouble walking. According to the attorney this is not a workmans comp related injury and I disagree, I had broken the ankle before starting to work for homeland in 1981 but according to research I have found that working in cold or cool temperature hastens the symptoms and worsens the degree of artritis ( I was a meat cutter)..does anyone have any knowledge of Oklahoma Workmans comp and arthritis and lastly.. I was bumped from my position as head meat cutter last year which lead to my medical leave causing severe mental trama( losing job after 23 years and aggrivated by favoritsm) the doctor wanted me to go to a psychriarst however I did not, now we are also having to pay cobra insurance and only have my wifes salary. Im sorry but I have not found any other place to ask these questions. If you can help or offer any advice I would appreciate it.
