My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: AZ
Come to find out my doctor's office or CA completed Industrial Commission paperwork. I had asked CA amd WC responsible for WC at my doctors office several times if Industrial Commission received my claim. Well, NO they had not. My employer was notified within an hour of my fall, CA called for details how the fall took place and my injuries etc.
I received a letter from CA my claim is denied and injuries was NOT work related. Also stated in the letter if Industrial Commission paperwork is filed my claim will be denied.
I had an IME just over a week ago and have not heard any results from the IME, however maybe I have thus claim denied!!! Pre-existing conditions and because I was seeing a Pain Management doctor because I had injuied my back a little of a year ago, everything is Pre-existing. I do meet with an attorney this coming Thursday. The attorney as well as the ICA representative this is common practice for IC/CA to lead IW in believeing all paperwork has been filed. Since I had received a WC# and script card for meds all paperwork was filed.
I have received a bill from the scripts I thought was being paid for by IC/CA and expect to receive bills from my doctor visits as well.
Is this normal from IC/CA??? Please anyone with similar situations or experiences please share your experices!

Sorry I meant DID NOT complete Industrial Commissions papwork! How can my injuries NOT be work related when I fell at work, injurying my neck, right shoulder. I had a back issue so I guess I understand lower back was pre-existing, even though by back is worse because of the fall. My doctor I saw after my fall at work treated like additional pain, but only mentioned I saw him after falling at work. UNBELEIVEABLE!!!!! No one has any advice for me or similar situations to share with me.... Would really appreciate your input...
