I have worked for a public education institution 8 years thru June 1, 2006. I filed a claim for workman's comp in April 2006, the company doctor told me I had carpul tunnel both hands and put me on restrictions; gave the infor to my work, but I continued to do the same job (without any modifications!. I got so bad I had to stop working(end of June 2006). My claim has been denied twice. I consulted an attorney July 2006 and I am appealing the denial.
I had Nerve conduction test in August 2006; saw the AME examiner February 9th 2007. All Doctors I have seen have verified that I have Severe Carpul Tunnel both hands. I have been off work since end of June 2006; My attorney says that I will begin to see some money soon, I have called her within the past three weeks, 6 times, she doesn't call me back. Haven't heard anything from the Insurance Carrier either. All sick leave and vacation are used up!! ANY SUGGESTIONS?
DESPERATE and pretty soon homeless IN CALIFORNIA
