  • achy, achy

    I'm a 56 yr old, and have been terminated by employer, but while I was still employed (in the animal field) I fell and injured my shoulder , the MRI showed that I had a partial rotator cuff tear. I did not, at the time go through worker's comp, because being a softie I didn't want my employers' worker's comp to go up, since, as always in the animal field, many injuries. When I orginally went to the doctor, post accident I told him it was work related and at that time did not file WC. I know it is documented in my medical file as how I got injured. I have gone through Physical Therapy, Chiropractory and still have much pain in my shoulder (which aches nearly all of the time). This accident happened in August '04, I got terminated in October '05. I did not receive severence pay, I lost my insurance coverage and now can't afford any more treatment, I just wanted to ask if I can still file under WC or am I up the achy,achy creek?
