I was injured at work in SC and my fingers were cut off at the first joint. I was told by another employer that when the safety team checked the machine I was injured on--the last mechanic that worked on it put the wrong screw in it-It is a machine drill" and the screww was sticking down to far and therefore caught my glove and twisted the ends of 2 fingers off. I had to have surgery to remove exposed bone. It has been 3 weeks since and I am still not able to go back to work. They want me to come back in and "sit" but I have to be off my meds. I canot do this as my pain s to bad. Any suggestions as to what I am entitled too. The WC lady is very nice-but I am wondering if she's just trying to get me back to work.
