Help please! 20 years old. workmans comp injury to my shoulder
Hello i am 20 years old i have an injury to my shoulder .. the injury happened august 19 my employer would not submit the paper worm and send me to a doctor until september 17 a month later. And lied to the insurance company and falsified documents and had me lie on papers and later when the insurance company sent an investigator i told him the truth. Im not getting into trouble because of my boss no way.. so i was sent to physical therepy and put on light duty and then a week later taken off work for a month because my work was not following my restrictions. I was sent back to work after a month and still on physical therepy and my 10 pound weight restriction. I have to go to therepy 3 times a week and i went for 3 months. Last week the therepy guy took me off therepy because it was not helping im at work and my shoulders getting worse i have had an mri with a little bit of die. They didnt put full amount in. And a cortizone shot that did nothing. and i have no answers im loosing around 200.00 a week because of my injury im in a rediculous amount of pain and its doen in my hand. I have numbness and pain in my hand. It hurts to move my hand i cant even put my arm behing my back it hurts so bad it feels like someones tearing my shoulder apart. It cracks alot ehick causes immidiate pain and throbbing pain after. My neck on my right side also has unbearyable pain. Im extreamly stressed between the pain and my work and not getting answers i cant take much more. I have never broken a bone tore or fractured anything never had stitches this is all new to me... i dont know what to do. Its been almost 5 months. Not only the pain but all the lost money and the cost to drive to and from therepy 3 times a week ect can someone please point me in the right direction and any suggestions are welcome thank you.
Hire a qualified attorney who specializes in Workers Compensation.

You have already done serious damage to your claim by telling lies on an official form or document. That's almost impossible to overcome without some intelligent legal help.
DISCLAIMER: I am not an attorney. While drawing from my professional training and experience in law enforcement and as a former Paralegal, no comments offered should be considered as legal advice.
you need a second medical opinion and probably a new treating doctor.
send the carrier a written request for them.

how your claim is handled and how the dispute process works depends on your state work comp laws.
without knowing that I can't provide more details.
Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
I'd go attorney in your situation, like asap. You are too young to understand how you are being taken advantage of. Don't hire a TV attorney. Check lawyers.com They are a reputable site and will give you a selection within the city/state you enter.

Make sure the attorney you do choose is a certified worker's comp specialist.

Let Go, and Let God......
well my friend,sorry for the runaround.i know whats that like.but anyway i had the same situation.on my left shoulder,then the neck,then down the right arm.like you.they had to do surgery to remove the the left bone in my shoulder.now i cant lift with that arm anymore.next they thought i would feel better after that.....WRONG!!now its in my right arm.my attorney found that i also had disc injury and pointed it out to the judge(C4-C7).but your lawyer will see this.like my did.he even had the doctor do and "EMG".to test and see if there is any nerve damage.its from there they move on to your neck and/or arm.not sure how or what you do for a living.so hard to tell.but i did construction.i have been through this for 5yrs now and it continues.had to fight for my "SS" cause im now disable.thanks not to my doctors but my competent lawyerBig Grin.got lots of experiences with this!!
