Hi everyone, iam new to this forum, but have found it a very interesting read. My case briefly, i injured Back at work, and have been on WC for 6 months, so far i have been lucky, everything as run smoothly for me since i got a attorney involved early on. I get my checks on time, even though they decreased the amount two weeks ago, My Dr 95% disabled, the WC Dr 75%, my attornery is waiting on a hearing to challange this. I have had a previous injury resulting in a Fusion 27 years ago, and now i have to go through another Fusion due to injury. I was wondering how long after my Dr puts in the request for surgery dues it take WC to agree?,Iam in constant pain and want to get the surgery over with so i can move on with my life. Iam not looking for anything other than a almost pain free life, and hopefully some kind of employment afterwards, I know i will not return to my previous job.
I want to thank everyone who posts the good and the bad about WC, and i consider myself so far very lucky.
