Re: Husband Getting Workmans Comp Medical but Still Working-Questions-Please Answer
It's better than getting nothing which is exactly what's going to happen in the near future.
The problem about going out completely is that the lawyer would have to take 20 percent of the checks and that would mean we could not afford to live.
Without a lawyer, they'll chew you up and spit you out.
Listen carefully - Tell your husband under no circumstance should he quit his job, he would forfeit wage loss benefits and complicate his case.
He is not to discuss this case any further with his employer, doctor or IC, that train left the station.
They obviously don't have his well being in mind and he could contaminate his case further.
Hire an attorney immediately!!
It may mean difference between keeping and losing your home, time is of essence, don't play games.
One "tactic" would be to go to work - then "take a dive" or "go down" in pain.
Tell him to make it good, don't cave, insist on immediate medical care.
We'll call this "the day that broke the camels back" the day he can no longer work.
This should open the door to a new medical opinion and strengthen his case.
There are other "tactics" that can be employed against hostile employers and doctors but we won't go into them now
These guys can be beat at their own game, use their ignorance against them.
When in Rome, do as the Romans, do whatever it takes to survive and get the care your husband needs.
KEEP UP THE FIGHT!!!!
