My husband, a law enforcement officer, was injured in a work related shooting last June 2012. His vest stopped the bullet. Around June 2012 he began to experience chest pain off and on over the course of the next 12 months until such time that the pain escalated to a point of emergent care. He has had over 7 emergency room visits for chest pain thinking he was experiencing a heart attack, similar condition. He has had echo, angiogram, and ultimately a heart cath of which the doc said he felt that my husband had nerve damage surrounding his heart from the shooting impact. We have attempted to reopen the claim from the shooting with no great urgency on the part of comp. He has been off work under doctors care this incident since May 2013 to present (almost 4 months) and they have yet to make a determination on his claim stating that he needs more tests, evals for psych, etc. They have in fact not denied anything as of yet but are only paying the psych medical bills, no heart bills, and he has yet to receive any pay for being off work. My family is about to starve to death and lose everything we own, our home, cars, etc. We are all suffering and they continue to delay the response citing they need more evals, tests, etc. His psych doctor and another referred to us both state that his heart issues are a result of PTSD, anxiety from the shooting and have yet to offer any further testing in regards to the nerve damage...How long can they sweat us out?
