I have repetitive trauma work injury - carpel tunnel and tendonitis. It started on one side and now I have it starting on the other side.
I requested an ergonomic evaluation, as has the physician, over 8 months ago. It is not complete, and I continue to re-injure myself at work despite PT, ice and lots of rest at home.
What are my rights within the state of Georgia? Can I not return to work until the ergo check is complete since it was ordered by the physician? What if I am unable to do the job where I am, due to the injury? Does the workers comp have to pay me while I find another job? Do I quit? Or do they let me go?
I have patiently waited and am tired of hurting!
