Calcaneal stress fracture in Alabama
#11
In SC you have 90 days to report an on the job injury, And 2 years from date of injury to file a WC claim. So if you were injured in 07, you may want to rush and file a claim ASAP...........Did you report your foot hurting to anyone at your place of employment?

Co-workers but didn't see any need to do anything else at the time...thought I had plantar fascitis and this is a chronic thing to deal with but a stress fracture is something else...especially calcaneal area..thanks

Okay, last question, why would you want it to be a workmens' compensation case? This is very important to know your answer. At the age of 64, I can't see any gain in trying to make a case of injury, when only 1 treatment in 2007, and another in 2009. That's 2 treatments you only have to show possible proof. But, it's still okay, for the second question is, are you willing to take on the hassles and hurdles you going to have to get through, to even try and make this a work comp claim? Need those answers first.

This is a question I ask myself. But, at 64, I have been very active, working full time and doing anything I want. It has been my intention to work till I am 70. Right now, I can't work at all...yes, nothing wrong with me physically but my foot.
I am not sure I want the hastle of going through this...good question.

Another thing, I think the plantar fascitis is what started this..I have always been a person to just keep on working, not letting much stop me. I was on the road and didn't stop to take care of me. I did seek help for the problem but still kept on going.
Now, this fracture I think occured while I was working in NM...down in Roswell from early January till late August..that is when I started hurting really bad. Sometimes my hip would hurt really bad and across my foott....I just thought I would see a doc at home when I was finished there. Which is what I did. He treated me also for plantar fascitis and when no better after his tx he decided to scan it.
So, I am a very lucky person at my age to be as active as I have been and I want to continue being active. I am also alone, not anyone else to support me.
I appreciate your thoughts on this.
Thanks

It doesn't matter where you start. The only thing that matters is for a DR. to say it's a work related condition. Absent that there is no claim.

"Absent that there is no claim."
Yes, that is what I wondered about too... there is not a quilifying "event" or "accident" .. So, my original question is is this a WC event or not. Does it all boil down to the MD opinion?..

yes, that' is all that matters. You cannot begin the comp process until a DR. attributes a medical condition to work activity.
