I was injured at work by a 2x4. I was walking with 2x4's, and had them by my side when a piece broke off, and went through my jeans, and in my skin. I could move it around, and see it 1" inside my skin. I told the supervisors I could remove it with a knife, but they said go to the hospital. The hospital used a knife to cut me open and get the wood out.
Anyway I got 2 bills for over $400, and wondering how long it takes for the insurance company to pay out? I just got mail saying workers comp was denied which I don't need workman's comp. I was back to work the next day.
I know somebody else who got injured last year at work, and their bill was almost as much as mine, but never got paid. He said its 1 year later, and the bill got reduced to $80. He said the hospital probably just wants something. How can they get away with stuff like this? Injuries at work you shouldn't be responsible for. We work for a bug corporation not under the table.
