Just filed a workmans comp claim
#1
Hello, I am new here and have a question that I hope you can help me with.
I have had two injections in my hands in the past 18 months and used my own health insurance to pay for the specialists. He advised that the injections were not helping me and I should seriously consider carpul tunnel surgery.

The numbness got worse in both hands and now pains in both hands to the point that I can not open or close all the way.

Two weeks ago I came to work and started but couldn't take it anymore.
I filed a workmans comp claim and took off work with a doctor's order for three weeks to help reduce stress and go treatments.

I contacted two lawyers and they both say I should have filed back when I first went to the doctor for the injections in 2010.
I did not know how this process worked at the time.
So my question is have I ruined my chances for a settlement and can my job fire me because I can not keep up with the work in my condition?
