Re: Workers Comp Sucks
Its horrible what they put people through and with the educated injured workers who don't cave in to the IC at least were a pain in the ass to them. I just can't imagine the amount of people who end up giving up or caving in. I go to the hearing and see injured people take settlements that I'd never want to but on advice of counsel, even though I'd love to take them aside and tell them to hold out that it will work out in the long run but they have families and responsibilities and it isn't my business to butt into theirs. Thus, my participating on this forum. I'm not the more intelligent, nor do I profess to be but I can attempt to help others with the knowledge of being injured and through the IC loops for many years!
I've spent my savings, needed bankruptcy relief albeit the one that consolidated my bills allowing me to pay them back and i could have wiped them clean but didn't feel it was correct to allow the IC to cause others to be affected by me not paying my fair share. Never have had a credit card nor expensive toys but needed assistance paying bills, mortgage, car payment and student loans!
I say keep up the good fight and someday the persistence will pay off, Lord willing! At least my medicals are paid which could easily be five figures a year, if not more!!
Knowledge is a beneficial tool for the injured worker!
