I work for a county EMS unit. I transported a patient who was later found to have a severe case of bacterial meningitis. Supervisors were informed but no further action was taken. 7 days later I ended up hospitalized with meningitis myself, but mi...
Sorry to hear about this. I hate itbthst you were helping and this happened.
I think you'd need a doctor to support it. The doctor would need to say it's more likely than not that the exposure to the patient is what caused it.
It just seems to coincidental not to be related.See question
I slipped on pine needles in a parking lot and broke my ankle. The management company was informed.
Sorry to hear about your injury. If you're asking whether or not you would be entitled Worker's Compensation benefits based upon the fact that you gave, then the answer is maybe without additional
Was the parking lot on your employers premises? Do you do work that requires you to be in that parking lot?
Please tell us about your work and what you were doing in the parking lotSee question
my lawyer had to of my cases my workers com and my auto we settled on worker comp now she called me and said we are ready to settle the other one but she says i have to give wokers comp some money back out of my share for medical bill they paid
That's correct. Workers comp fronted your medical care which is part of your damages in the car accident case. By law workers Comp has a lien and you'd be required to pay some of those back. Your attorney is correct.See question
I worked in a prison and was hit with a steel door. I was refused medical attention the first day because even though I was in great pain They did not have some paperwork. After getting the paperwork my supervisor did not fill out her part until ...
Sorry to hear about your situation.
Discrimination typically refers to a protected class of person- race, gender etc.
Your situation, at least based upon the facts you gave, sounds like bad treatment versus discriminating against a protected class. Your injury would fall under workers Comp versus a lawsuit.

I was injured at work resulting in a slap tare in my right shoulder. Workmans comp. paid for doctor visits , MRI , and I have been evaluated at 8% loss and I am awaiting thier settlement offer . I just wanted to make sure it is adequate offer
Depends on multiple factors. What's your compensation rate (weekly check amount)?See question
I injured my shoulder at work and for three weeks I told my boss about it. My boss kept laughing it off saying, "that's what the job does". During the 3rd week, I felt something snap and had to demand medical attention because I could no longer us...
So sorry to hear about the circumstances. It's unfortunate when an employer or insurance carrier treats a hard worker like this. Unfortunately, you are limited to workers compensation based upon your description but in order to maximize your medical care and potential recovery, most workers Comp lawyers offer no charge consultations.See question
I am sick cold/flu and sinus infection. I am scheduled for surgery next week. I am currently out of work pending surgery and I am receiving workers comp checks. I want to reschedule the surgery due to my illness but fear I could lose my workers co...
Yes, it can. You need to call the doctor and tell them you are ill. Not only is it possible to reschedule the doctor may insist because normally they wont put you under anesthesia if you are sick or run a risk of additional infection. If you have a lawyer call them and get them to assist. If not represented by a lawyer then call the doctor then the insurance adjuster so they know why. Feel better and I hope surgery goes well.See question
I was in an accident getting off an interstate taking a left turn. I stopped at the light because the light had just switched to yellow so I didn't want to rush the light so I waited for the next cycle. About a minute later when my light turns gre...
There "may" be cameras somewhere around. Traffic lights, ATMs, gas stations etc. Canvass the area for who may have a view of the intersection. If you don't want to do that then reach out to a local lawyer and see if they can assist. good luck to you.See question
I had a really bad accident at work two years ago. I ended up having surgery which went bad and lasted 19 months under extreme pain . I finally got better and returned to the work force. This past weekend I was doing yard work and somehow after I ...
Did you settle your case? If so, how (form 16a or clincher)?See question
I fell at work and crushed my heel over a course of 2 years I have had 4 surgeries with a 44 % impairment rateing
Cannot answer this based upon the information provided.
There are a ton of other factors to include:
Is the rating to the foot or the leg?
What is your weekly compensation rate?
Type of settlement you want clincher versus a form 16a which leaves claim open for 1 year?
Back at work?
Any unpaid mileage or medical bills?
And so on...
