I am on W/C since May and have not gotten anywhere with these fools.I fell in a manhole broke ribs,pelvis and have two bulging disks.The problem i am having is trying to get them to approve the tests and procedures the Dr's have ordered.I am still waiting for a test from my neurologist to be approved.I have had blood in my urin since the fall and these jerks are playing games with me.I was scheduled for my first epi on monday and my pain management called yesterday and informed me that this still has not been approved yet !I am going crazy.Not to mention what the state of Georgia pays for W/C wages...66% not enough to live on.Also not to mention the fact that AIG is the insurance co for my work!!I am getting depressed(not kidding) I have never been in this situation ever.I cannot believe AIG and the adjuster they gave me could do this? It took them almost three months to get my first check...At that time i lost my car was put in collection,had so many over drafts and i am in the process of loosing my house because i am 4 mo in the rearage!!!..Now this crap with the pain i am dealing with and the ignorant people who are not helping me.Do not get hurt at work,it is not worth it at all.I am sorry to post this,it just helps me with getting it off my chest.If it is in the wrong area forgive me. God Bless, Matti. K

  • Do they WC lawyers? I think I have heard advertisements for them. I would call around. Maybe you can get some legal help on your side. I am betting that the insurance company would work much faster if they thought they couldn't screw with you so to speak.

    I think a lawyer may also be able to get a freeze on certain bills. Its worth a shot at least.

    Good Luck

  • 66% Outrageous! You just can't count on them to take care of employees when they're hurt. Once you get hurt, you have to go thru hoops, and doctors that I wouldn't trust with my pets. And you have to fight with them for everything. And also be under surveillance.
    In the future, if you get better and maybe move to another job, do these things to protect your livelihood.

    Get short term disability insurance
    Get long term disability insurance
    Get life insurance

    Protect yourself and your family. My husband learned the hard way a few years ago. Yes it's extra money coming out your paycheck, but it will save you in case of injury in the future.
    I hope you get better soon and get things back on track. I'm really sorry for what happened and my heart goes out to you.
  • Having had to fight w/c and sue my former employer (a process that took over 3 years), I know exactly how you feel. It is hard and certainly not fair! However, it is what it is and you need to arm yourself with a good attorney who will fight for you and your rights. Please do not wait any longer, find yourself an attorney that specializes in w/c-most of them work on contingency, meaning they don't get paid until and unless you get paid. Also, many of them also specialize in Soc Sec Disability, which it sounds like you may be a candidate for as well (SSD is a VERY slow process, so the sooner you apply, the better! I'm STILL waiting and it's been almost 3 1/2 years).

    I won't get into all of the details of my fight with w/c and SSDI, but if you'd like any information I can provide, feel free to PM me and I'd be MORE than happy to help. I am fighting with all my might to prevent injured workers from ending up like me because I know first hand what it's like to get messed over simply because my job rendered me disabled. PLEASE don't EVER stop fighting! You CAN beat this!

    Best of luck to you....we really do care.
