Exactly you are playing the same game your family played. And we wonder why this state and country is in ruins. You gotta get approved by the doctor first in order to procede. It is amazing how many people will get cut on just to sit at home and do nothing. You are a loser and a piece of trash.

Here is the main question, does your company have a history of people getting work comp or a history of people being denied work comp. Some companies are very good about fighting it and other companies aren't.

If the information that you have shared on here is accurate, you are not handling this yourself. You need to hire a work comp attorney. This is what they do, they fight for you. They do it every day. I would recommend Lawler and Lawler. Mrs. Lawler is excellent.

do you understand what workers comp is ? I received it after a mining accident 2 back surgeries and a hand surgery. One year of physical therapy and was released back to work with permanent restrictions and nerve damage, so i was discharged after 21 years without a claim because the employer told me due to my restrictions there was no position available...during my time of hurt the employer { American Coal} found clever ways to stop my comp payments, then i would wait 6 months for a hearing and then my attorney would take 20 %. I am sure if you were hurt in an accident at your job you wouldn't accept comp because of your high morals. you have no idea what your talking about...oh & yes I had Tom Rich all the miners also use him because the company is out to screw you. you are a dumb ass !

Is it a arbitration hearing on comp they owe you, or a settlement offer paid by workers comp after you have been released by a physician ?

So in other words, DUMB ASS, not only did the doctor not find anything wrong with you, your attorney also realized that he didn't have a leg to stand on because of your false claims. When was the last time an attorney would not put up a fight to get paid? Don't see anywhere where you have filed for disability for all those surgeries? Or where you denied that also? Amazing how people will get cut on just to get out of working. Bet you found another job and didn't mention previous injuries just so you can try to sue them too. All i hear is cry, cry, cry, from people like you but in the end it is people like me that have to pay for you being lazy. That's whats wrong with this country. People paying for others. If you took the time to focus on working instead of how you are going to get out of working this country would be a better place. Even if you feel these claims against you are false, you could always start your own business. What business have you started? Oh wait you will claim that you can't get a small business loan, right? You gotta do whatever it takes, have you walked along the side of the road and picked up aluminum cans? I bet not. You gotta start somewhere. Its called hard work.

You are a prime example of why this country is in such poor shape.....sheer stupidty. Please do your self a favor and stop showing your ignorance. I have lost a grandfather in a coal mining accident. I also have a husband who was on workman's comp due to mining accident. When is the last time you went 3 miles underground to work. It is a very dangerous job and accidents do occur. I would would encourage you to keep up on current events....especially the ones where 2 coal miners have died in the last few months. My husband never had surgery prior to his accident but I according to your logic I guess he just had his accident so he could experience the pleasure of surgery, pain and being lazy. Working 21 years underground in a coal mine is hard work. I am guessing a lot harder than you have or will ever do in your life.

Can you read dumb ass, yes plenty wrong with me i had two back surgeries & a neck surgery.. you little prick i worked several years day & night hard labor in the cold, mud hot weather double shifts & holidays raised a family & i was hurt many times but continued to work. I was hurt helping another man in a mining accident..M.S.H.A was called in and the mine was shut down. I didn't get the surgeries for fun. I take pain meds everyday & use a cane to help me walk. you need to shut your mouth cause some people do fake an injury, I wish mine was fake so my pain would go away. Workers comp is insurance for when you get injured on the job, bet your ass would take it if you ever had the misfortune to get injured..prick !!

you want to talk about any attorney. The coal mine attorney requested i return to work, and since the Doctor is the ONLY person that can release you i could not return, then the Coal mine attorney said i was medical non compliant so my comp was stopped. then go to a hearing and a judge would award the back pay on comp minus 20%. It is a game the company does with it's attorneys. You know nothing about this unless you have been through it, so why don't you just shut the hell up and not try and act like you do !
