My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: California
My husband worked for a well known, large company for 10 years. He had injured his back and knee due to continuous trama and could not work with the pain anymore. When he reported it to his supervisor and HR rep. he was told that it was a personal injury and that he would need to see his personal doctor. I called an attorney that advised us to seek medical attention and then follow his instructions after that. It has now been a year and a half. My husbands state disability has been exhausted, we are trying to get social security and we have not received any payment from his employers WCI. To top it off, my husband received a letter from the employer a couple of weeks ago stating that he was being removed from payroll due to his extended personal leave....what personal leave?? We have our first mandatory settlement hearing tomorrow and the QME report states that the injury was work related. My husband had knee surgery last week that the WCI paid for, so arent they claiming some responsibility?
