My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: Ca.
I haven't filed for W.C. but I'm looking into it. I worked in a hardware store for 27 yrs. I did lifting, stalking shelves, bending, standing, walking, mixing paint, (1 gal and 5 gal. pails). I didn't have any specific injurys to report at work, just over the years it affected my back. I had back surgery (spinal fusion L-4, L-5, S-1) in Sept. 2009.I didn't return to work beacuse I can't do the job duties required. I still have pain when I do everyday chores. Can I still file for cumlative trauma caused from the years working at the hardware store. My boss let me go in Oct. 2010.
