Until today I thought I was being treated very well by my Employer and the IC. I have been receiving my weekly checks since my injury on May 8th, 2008, I have been receiving mileage for all of my appointments, and I have one of the best Doctors in Nashville. Today I went to my employer to pick up my check and was told that if I was going to be out for more than another month, they were going to have to replace me. I've been looking through all of the WC laws and forums, because I could of sworn I read that they were required by law to save a position of equal or greater pay.
I tore one of the hamstring tendons away from my pelvis on the job. I had surgery on May 30th and have been going to therapy three times a week ever since. The work comp maximum payment is much less than I normally make per week and the bills are really getting behind, I'm was hoping the settlement would catch me up, but now it looks like I won't have a job. My employer told me not to freak out, that is was proceedure and I could reapply when I was released MMI. I'M FREAKING OUT!!! Pleas any advice would be greatly appreciated.
