I was fired from job in September of this year due to a Workers Comp injury that was sustained in March of this year. They said they were an 'at-will' employer and, besides, I had used up my FMLA hours. I have 3 herniated disks in my back. Workers Comp paid for the first month of doctors, prescriptions, etc. in March, but stopped in April as the pain switched sides and they said it might be kidney stones. They directed me to my family doctor. After 3 months of testing (MRI's, catscans, body bone scans, colonoscopy, etc.), it was finally determined that I had these 3 bad disks. My doctor said it was from the fall I took in March. Workers Comp sent me to their doctor in July. He also said it was from the fall. Short term disability ran out June 18. I am now (as of 10/1) receiving unemployment because Workers Comp to this date has still not agreed to Workers Comp! I have hired an attorney to rush things along, but, as of today, nothing has been accomplished and no money has been received. My credit scores are now below 400, I have had one vehicle repossessed, and owe everyone, including the doctors and hospitals. I'm due to be evicted from the house I'm leasing. Other than that, things are fine. I asked my attorney if we can sue Workers Comp for any of this and he said that in the state of Georgia, one cannot sue Workers Comp for pain and suffering. I'm not denying that I have had more than my share of pain and suffering, but how about the vehicle repossessed? The credit scores tumbling? Anyone know anything about this. Can Workers Comp, or the insurance company that is handling the claim, be sued for ruining my life? Did I mention that my wife has left me? How about suing the company or person at the Workers Comp insurance company? Someone needs to ante up here, besides me.
