My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: MT
I received an email from my adjuster today telling me that I will no longer be receiving benefits.
My injury happened when I was running to get behind the front desk ( I was the GM at this hotel ). My foot stopped on the tile and I kept going. I only had about 6-8ft to go before I ran into the corner wall. It was the small convenient mart right next to the front desk....that was L shaped and I ended up shoved into the corner walls landing on my left knee, arm and chin....with my right side twisted behind me. The pain in my left knee was so excruciation I could only feel that pain for many weeks. I was the GM and lived on property....which I had to work the front desk M-F 6am-6pm....and I figured that I probably just bruised my knee and it would go away soon. Well it didn't and by the next month I was getting sharp pains shooting down my right leg. When I was able to go to the doctor...they atttributed it to my right side being twisted back when I fell. My doctor ordered an MRI and it showed I had 2 bulging disks with a small tear....and the pain in my right leg was referred pain. This has gone on for 1 1/2 years with therapy....injections in my lower back....therapy....therapy( no payments of anykind) !!! Finally an IME was ordered and know they are saying the back symptoms are not related...even though I have been treated all along. The pain in my right leg is still bad and the IME dr says MMI. I am contacting a W/C attorney.....do you think I can fight this decision that the adjuster submitted.
