My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: GA
I have been working at my job for about 9 months now and sometime after i started i began to have pain near my elbow that shot straight down my arm. I had never experienced this before so i thought it was just sore muscles but when i looked up on the internet what the pain might be, i found out it was tennis elbow. I work in warehouse picking products to be shipped for 10hrs a day, now i have gotten to the point where picking things up causes me pain. It has affected my job production and doing my job has become difficult.
What advice i need is should i say something to my job or should i go to my doctor and speak to a lawyer? I just don't wish to go through all the hassle that people have gone through dealing with workmans comp Ins. I do not wish to lose my job and I can't afford to be out of work. I do not know what to do. Some people may say to look for different type of work but it's hard to find a job here where i can get paid what i do make. any suggestions anyone? please help.
I shall be leaving to work here soon and starting another painful day at work.
