My Mood: Workers compensation - Tips and suggestions
Default

All this advice is very good.

Question: At present since I didn't even consider my accident to be related to
workmen's comp. It was my supervisor and our director that chose to turn my
accident in. They have bent over backwards trying to be there for me.

I work for a non-profit that helps families with special needs.

But my Question: Should I consider hiring a lawyer. Because I still have
no clue which or if all my bills are workmen's comp. Or what to do about
my health insurance Co. And the case manager assigned there.

Ugh, I have a mess can you help please.

Donna

The EMG test still came out negative but this doctor wrote me a report confirmed that I has Carpal Tunnel syndrome, it is worked- related.

Do you think the w/c will accept my case without any possitive test beside just my doctor report.

Please give me advise.

Thank you so much.


It has been documented that Emg ‘s
Can have a 10-30 percent change of error. For some reason in some people a emg may be a negative result but realistically you may have nerve damage. Just do other tests , like tineal test , your neuro or ortho will know what to do. Your symptoms are real and your emg is giving a false negative. Don’t give up find a md that is on your side because if wc sends you to a ime they will say nothing is wrong with you.
