    Default Owner of Company Took Prescriptions

    My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: Illinois
    Im an Arborist and was injured on May 11,2015,torn labrum is what the dr thinks.went to Emergency room due to not bein able to move the right arm at all. Attendin dr prescribed some medicine.The next day the owner of company i work for asked for all paperwork so i complied.She told me she would "take care of the prescriptions". The injury was May 11 which was when i got the scripts and to this day,June 11,I still dont have anything. I have called my so called Adjuster,which has been switched 6 times since the injury, and still have gotten no where.I just got a phone call yesterday from a place called One Time Diagnostics tellin me they just scheduled my MRI with contrast injections yesterday.Im dealin with Amtrust,,and input and suggestions are welcome,,im lost at this point

    Im a countryboy and not too smart when it comes to this stuff. I asked one of the adjusters at Amtrust if i needed an attorney and she said " you wont need to go to that extreme,we will take care of you and get you everything you need".But how do I pay my bills when Im missing a bunch of work ? The Dr has me on all kinds of restrictions and there is no "Light Duty" when I am a Arborist .I dont know which way to go at this point.My electric is about to get shut off and I have 2 boys ,ages 5&6

    Get an attorney. The insurance company has one, or 100. Their only goal is to get this resolved and you back to some kind of work even if it is for far less than you are making. They are not even interested in making you better/as good as you were or anything in between. Even their doctors are not interested in healing you because they work for the insurance company. Oh and if someone stole your pain pils/narcotics a controlled substance that is illegal and I would call the police.

    The insurance company could not care less about you. Of course the adjuster will tell you not to get a lawyer! That way, she can take advantage of you a lot easier. The insurance company is NOT on your side. They are not your advocate. The insurance company is your adversary in this process.

    If you don't mind getting screwed over and over, then keep representing yourself. If you care how this turns out, then you need to engage a good workers' comp lawyer, as soon as possible.
    The North Carolina Court of Appeals has held that "In contested Workers' Compensation cases today, access to competent legal counsel is a virtual necessity." Church v. Baxter Travenol Labs, Inc., and American Motorists Insurance Company, 104 N.C. App. 411, 416 (1991).
