I was injured on the job 2 years ago. It was a fall at work and the company was at first very supportive of me. Doing whatever they could to make me comfortable at work. Was only off work for a week at first. 17 months after injury I had surgery on my hand and wrist which was unsuccessful and actually caused more pain then before. 3 1/2 months after the surgery my company fired me with a very lame excuse. I retained an attorney after that. The attorney helped me change my doctor who ordered a cervical MRI which showed a damaged cervical disk at c5-6. His recommendation is surgery and I was told that the problems with my arms are most likely due to that. The pain is getting worse everyday and I am at the point where I can hardly wash my hair even. I am still marked as TTD so am receiving benefits. The problem I am having is that WC is denying surgery because I never said anything about my neck before. Sorry but it doesn't hurt! When I went to the ER after the fall with a head injury and arm pain (they did a CT scan of my head to check for bleeding) I was never given a cervical exam. So even though for more than a year of telling the doctors about having fallen and hitting my head (hard enough that I don't remember the whole fall, just the sound of my head hitting the rocks) they always ignored me. And now they don't want to cover anything dealing with cervical pain. What can I do? My attorney seems a bit slow to take care of things. Also my company has already called and offered me money "to make this all go away".
