    So your employer is not going to provide you this info, because they know you can sue them for failing to provide you a safe work environment. We handle these cases all the time and what we find is the employer delays providing info so they can delay your medical treatment and benefits my You need to have a non-subscriber look at your case immediately.

    Brian’s Answer

    You definitely need a lawyer to find out who is responsible for your husband's injuries. You may have a case against employer, temp company, manufacturer of the machine. Given that thos has already happened once, there may even be a punitive claim. These are usually handled on contingency basis.

  • Work injury

    My husband got "laid off no light duty" after receiving an injury at work, he was a truck driver and reported the injury when it occurred. They gave him the run around and told him to go to his dr or er and get it checked out on the insurance.

    Brian’s Answer

    Was there anything the company did that caused your husband to be injured? If so, then you need to find out if the company has workers comp. A lot of big companies lie to their employees and tell them they do... when they dont.
