Workers Comp Claim was denied Virginia
This is my first posting on this forum so I hope to get some insight form you all. This happened a few months ago. I was working as a waiter for about a year. I had some back issues but nothing major. Then I started having more and more pain. I sincerely do not know if working caused my pain to get worse or not. It came to a point where I was in so much pain I had to finally see a doctor (It took me a while since I have no insurance.) I had to tell my employer because I started to miss work because of the pain even though I was taking pain medicaion. My Boss told me to get medical evaluation and find out the cause of the pain but in my current circumstance I would not be allowed to come back to work because they didnt want me to risk further injure myself and I could not fulfill all my duties.
Even though I had some good days they were mostly bad. I really wanted to continue work but my employer would not let me work without knowing first what was going on. As many of you can imagine finding the source of your pain is no easy feat. In any case, I was told that given my current situation I would not be able to fulfill my duties as a server in a busy establishment. I filed for unemployment and I was awarded this because I was not fired for cause. I filed with the Workers comp commission and my claim was denied due to "no injury by accident, and improper notice". I admit that I did not report an injury to my manager, and I feared reporting my pain would put my job at risk and I stuck it out for as long as I could. The workers comp attorney I hired has filed an appeal. I just want to know at this point what my chances are and whether I should continue pursuing the case. I still have back pain. http://www.workerscompensation.com/forum...es/sad.gif
