California work comp rules laws or whatever you want to call them sucks.
It's unjust how injured workers are treated. There should be laws against this. Oh wait, I forgot there are. But for what good are they.
The insurance companies are NOT your friend, their NOT trying to work with you. They are trying to hold off and/or not pay you until you have no income and no choice but to try and find work just to keep from being homeless... Then they'll say you weren't injured to begin with.
The insurance company likes to delay and play games with the injured workers life. We as injured workers cannot sue, we give up that right because the work comp is a "no fault" system. Yea right. It feels like an "injured workers" fault the way we are treated.
I advise any injured worker in the state of California to get a lawyer to represent you.
ALL THE INSURANCE COMPANY cares about is money, and how not to pay it to you.
We'd all have better luck being a dead president on a piece of paper, because at the end of the day that's all anyone cares about.
Sorry... just had to get that out, and you guys are the only ones who understand.
Praying for the best for us all
