Workers Comp denial



  • A fall at work started my neck issues as well. At first I had mild neck pain and headaches but one morning four months later I woke up and couldnt move my head and severe radiating pain down my left arm. From the beginning, I have been covered by workman's comp. I had a couple of months without seeing a doctor so I was asked to sign off on it but luckily I didnt.

    When I found out I needed my first fusion, I was told by my Physical therapist that it would likely take months to get an approval by WC so I decided to hire a lawyer. She was wrong however but I dont regret hiring him. I am about to have a second fusion in five days. If I had not hired him I probably would have settled by now or signed off possibly.

    In your case, I really have to wonder if your doctor wrote something to the effect that it was not work related. I would get all my medical records and take it to the lawyer as soon as possible.
