injection site injury
#1
I filed a claim for an injury that arose during my yearly employee physical - an injection site injury with serious repercussions. Has anyone been down this road? my injury is real, but is causing raised eyebrows.

Wouldn't a claim be made against whoever gave the medical care rather than an on-the-job injury?

as long as it's only raised eyebrows you're in good shape.

flu vaccine given in inappropriate part of shoulder, ensuing limited range of motion, reported twice, "dismissed" as "this could not be related to your flu shot". Sought help thru my PCP. Now conservative measures have failed, MRI shows supraspinatus tendon tear (kinda where the medical personnel stuck the needle), need surgery. I am covered through my health insurance but filed a WC claim to protect job and further coverage for my shoulder. I am expecting this to me a rough ride as it's an unusual injury. Has anyone heard of this kinda injury?

I spent several years in the medical field. I've given flu shots and other injections more times than I can ever count. I have never heard of this kind of injury due to a needle. The length of the needle alone prevents this possibility. Not only that, it's just too small.

Now, as I understand it, this is related to the rotator cuff...the shoulder area. That usually happens due to a fall or repetitive use. If your job requires you to use it repetitively, then you might have a case.

When you file WC that does not protect your job as much as you might think. Unless you are in a union FMLA will only protect your job for 12 weeks. Now they can't fire you because you filed a WC claim but there many other reasons they can come up with so be careful

you'll need supporting medical evidence that the injection was the cause.
