    Default Slap Tear and Bicep Tenodesis

    I was a maintenance man at a set of condos in Gulfport MS. On January 30 2014 I was involved in an accident that was not my fault while on the clock. I did not have to go to the hospital but started having problems in my right shoulder that night. I told my boss about the accident immediately and about the pain that started that night. Apparently they never filed a first report with worker comp. They told me if i filed I would be fired so i kept working all year long until they decided they didn't need me anymore and fired me in September. I had my surgery for my slap tear and a bicep tenodesis on December 10 2914. I have been out of work ever since and it seems that they are slow playing filing the worker comp paperwork even now. My doctor initially told me i would be lucky to get 70-80% of my movement and strength back. I have child support payment due and am hoping that I can borrow some money from my family to take care of that until this starts working out. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    you can file the report yourself, but I suggest you get an attorney right away, consultations are free, make sure they specialize in wc law

    Actually, you should have gotten a lawyer when they told you they would fire you if you filed the claim. That was your first clear clue that they don't play by the rules. You will get nowhere on this without a good and aggressive workers' comp lawyer. It has already been a year and the employer's lack of interest in doing the right thing should be clear to you by now.

    You have made so many mistakes trying to handle this yourself that even a good lawyer may not be able to clean up this mess for you and get you covered. But maybe one will try.

    So go talk to a lawyer and see if someone can help you. Good luck.
