My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: NV 2010
I slip and fall at work.I had to get knee surgery to be able to walk and maybe to get pain away.After I went thur PT and everything I went back to work.As soon as I went back to work since day one my boss is on my tail,telling me to go do this and that ,folling me around,harrasing me even wrote me up on the same day.After talking to a lot of people I learned that this happens everyday ...that once a worker gets hurt on the job and he or her got working comp case going the empoyer will find a way to fire that worker b/c they are afraid that the worker will get hurt again and sue the empoyer big time.I resign and got the hell out of that place.I had gone to permanent partial disability evaluation.The physician did my knee & whole body rating.He gave me 3% whatever that means.The insurance claim adjuster that has my claim has not call me or anything yet.I only talked to aduster maybe three time.I got done with rating everything 5 weeks ago.What should I do? Should I sue? Is it too late to sue?I have no lawer.I feel there nothing much a lawer could do for me at this time.I filed for SSD and and I just got in the mail forms to fill out where I worked for 10 years and what I did.I have a letter from SSA that says if I became disabled today I could get $1,075 a month.Does SSI and my worker comp work togather? It sure feels to me that there's something going between my worker comp claim and SSI.As sson as I filed for SSD after two weeks I got new forms in the mail to be filled out and mail in in less than 15 days I was told.Do SSD & worker comp work togather before my worker comp make me an offer or something close to that? Thank you all for your help.I look forward to read your respond.Your comments mean a lot to me and agin thank you.God Bless.
