Can no longer do regular security again
I was injured by two mental patients while working contract security at a County Phyciatric Hospital in California February 29, 2016. I received surgery on my left ankle, during which my perniol nerve was damaged. I was sent back to work with no restrictions, although my ankle continued to hurt and soon noticed a small bump under my skin on left side of my ankle. I finally received a CT scan that showed i had 1 broken bone, 1 chipped bone floating, a screw backed out and was pushing out the side of ankle, (the bump), and 3 frozen tendons. I received a 2nd surgery through my lawyers doctor, The nerve damage is still present and I do not feel strong enough in my ankle to run, walk or stand for long periods, nor conduct take downs at my work. I can no longer do the regular security I have done for the last 23 years. I was given a 13% rating only and was told that after 10 months of surgery and recovery, plus never being able to do my job, it is only worth less than $7000 and continual medical coverage. How is this fair or just?
Many with comp injuries have too high expectations. It sounds like the treatment and the disability payments came to many thousands of $$$. Your PD is only a small part of what you received.
Unfortunately it isn't fair in every case.and There is nothing in the comp law that says it has to be.
Luckily You are likely to find work that is less demanding.
Others that have suferred unfortunate loss have had to focus on what they still have and not what they don,t.
If you need counseling to deal with the change of employment, don't be afraid to ask your physician for a referral.
