See a injury atty that specializes in workers comp

At this point you are going to need help getting all your claims paid and back short term disability that is owed to you. Ask around if anyone in the area knows of a good atty and make a appointment. Keep your pain management appointment , these are the doctors that will help control your pain so do not miss that appointment. My pain Dr has me on the right meds to keep me comfortable but it did take some time to come up with the right ones for me so dont be disappointed if your pain relief is not at a acceptable level until they find the right right combo of meds for you

You really need an attorney

You really need an attorney at this point. Make sure you research and choose a good one so you don't get taken advantage of twice. Ask friends, ask a family member to help you find one. Workers comp insurance goal is to pay as little as possible and then to close your case. They just don't care if you are made whole again.
