  • Do I have to have a case manager at my MD visits?

    I returned to work, without restrictions per MD, after a 2 month loa (from neck issues--had several procedures). I work as a RN and on the 2nd weekend of working, I lifted a patient and had a horrific pain. It was reported. It was a similar pain ...

    Your case is considered a non-catastrophic case. On a non-cat case, a nurse case manager has to have your written consent to attend doctor visits with you. Did you sign something giving permission? Simply tell the adjuster and nurse case manager you revoke your permission. I would also put this in writing. It sounds like you should consult a workers' comp attorney to guide you through this process as the insurer is not treating you fairly.

    I would need more facts but it appears they should be paying you WC benefits. You will need to speak to a WC attorney as soon as possible.

    I will tell you it is critical for you to speak with a workers comp attorney immediately. There are many on this site that will provide free consultations. Any attorney in GA that practices primarily workers comp can advise you. It is commendable that you want to find work that you can perform. However, you should not under any circumstances quit your present job. If you do you will be giving up valuable rights.

  • Do I have a case?

    I work at SAMs club and I recently pulled my back and got a heniated disc for having to transfer h2o. I'm on workers comp but I have to miss work to go to appt and lose money I could be working for. There are 2 other coworkers who have done the sa...

    Zack’s Answer

    There are a number of questions I have for you. Did the doctor send you for an MRI which showed this herniated disc? How did you get to this doctor and is the panel of physicians valid? On the surface it sounds like you have a very good case. If you need surgery, you would be taken out of work and income benefits would be started. However, you are at a critical place in your case right now. You should talk to a GA workers' comp lawyer right away.
