My husband has been working for a restaurant that I used to think was great. That was before they ticked off the manager and she quit,then a new manager moved here from wisconsin and took over. I worked there for exactly 2 months,but the manager was being an ass and treting certain employees better than others,though they were the ones messing things up. Well,the manager will not do anything to make things decent for the employees. The trash cans are the 55 gallon garbage cans and the employees stack the trash higher than the top of the can. The can is greasy,will not come clean just by normal scrubbing it and the employees ask for pressure washer and the manager refuses,the cook has even sprung for a new water hose and nozzle,fixing things because manager says no money in budget for those things,but how can you run a restaurant without supplies. Anywayshe took the can out to empty into the dumpster which is what they are supposed to do. When he went to lift the can up to the dumpster,he felt something pull in his back. When he got the can almost up to the top of dumpster,it fell,hitting him and knocking him backwards. He went to the emergency roomafter accident report was filled out. He has a fracture foot,sprained ankle,sprained lumbar and problems with S1 and L5. Doctor put him off,stating release for duty date is undeterminable at the time,so is mmi. The doctor says next week when we go backhe may be ordering other tests and therapy. My question is this,before this happened my husband could lift damn near anything he wanted,now he can not even hold our two month old grand daughter,he can not sleep with me because it jars his back,I have to get im up and down,help him get dressed and all. After the doctor releases himwhenever that is,will the insurance company offer a settlement. They have excepted the claim,paying bills and all,so I am just wondering what will happen if he has to have back surgery and when he is released.
