I am so new to the w/c thing, I was injured at work hurt my back, now the problems are moving down into my hips and legs, I am having numbness in my arms and legs, I have been given restrictions not more than 5 days and 5 hrs per day, I was suppose to begin physical therapy a month ago, but the company never set it up. I am getting worse and yet when I can hardly get out of bed in the morning for work, I feel guilty if I don't. They have written me up for what they say is hear say and of course not true. yet before my injury, i was told how excellent I was and given a raise. I'm being harassed about so many things, I am mentally rained and becoming depressed. I am at a loss. What do I do? I am a single mom and it will already be hard with only 50 hrs a pay period vs 92, i usually worked.
Will WC pick up a part of the salary, I am losing? If so who do I talk to?
Can I be reimbursed for mileage?
Should I get a lawyer, due to harassment an to handle my claim? Someone Please help.
