I had to hire a lawyer and fight them for 2 yrs. My injury ended up alot worse due to the wait. And still to this day i will never be the same. My life changed and nobody cared. I ended up homeless and was lucky if i ate 2 times a week. I understand people are svammers BUT WHAT ABOUT THE ONES THAT ARENT?

All injured workers who can't work, need to apply for SSI, FOOD STAMPS, etc. until they can settle their WC case. You are allowed to own a home/car - just not have a lot of cash, savings, etc. to qualify when disabled. Don't lose all you have while waiting.

Heresay? How about common sense. You are hurt, you are in pain - your employer has insurance on you - YOU SHOULD GET HELP? hmmm. Your employer, Brickstreet (any insurance company) neither want you to win and most attorneys will only take slam dunk cases so you are on your own.

Brickstreet is a top notch company that have excellent employees that strive to give their customer the best care and protection available. They care about the community and the state and will give back when possible.
But in Wv they did make major big time money , by being paid huge sums of money by companies in Wv to negotiate and determine justifed compensation money & medical claims . To select physcians & health care facilities and providers to provide care for these individuals . Or as my husband says , Their only there to beat the real working people out of what is their right , and to keep the companies making money and forget the workers issues , and I agree Just a company that made big money from taking ours.

Absolutely, they got interest free loan from OLD WC,paid it back quick as they got rich instantly by denying, denying, denying injured workers. They
constantly touted how "crooked state WC run system was" - and now it was found in their own house - and we all know the employer and insurance company does not want to pay any benefits and most attys now work for Brickstreet in this state as they get paid more.

It's a no win situation for the injured worker.
