    Default Broken Wrist (Right) Dominant and Broken Elbow Left

    Whilst unloading a semi trailer I managed to be thrown out of the trailer.Reefer type
    It was not at a loading dock, it was parked on a residential street in a coned off work area
    There was no tail lift and no safety rails or steps at rear door area,the product we were unloading ran away from the 3 of us flipping me out of the trailer onto the roadway resulting in my injuries both have be surgically repaired pins and plate in each and I'm waiting for workmans comp to start.
    (Ultimate question can I get any kind of compensation for my injuries)

    Yes, wage loss and medical, if they fail to do the right thing, retain a lawyer.

    I have already retained a lawyer as it took 9 days from initial injury/ER visit to see orthopedics and I got fed up with WC failure to return calls my lawyer has supposedly filed a lawsuit against WC/company he said there effectively the same thing tho not sure what lawsuit is for.

    How would my wage loss be calculated ? I was taking home 12-1500 prior to injury believe wc only about 500 working on base wage of 1000 66 2/3% -25% =495
    Medical I'm assuming will be paid by wc unless your referring to any future medical treatment
