I have not worked in 26 months. I have only received a few months back pay from work comp. And time payed was almost half of what my checks should have been. I was receiving housing, utilities, cell phone, etc. as part of my salary and my employer was only reporting my hourly against my wishes to the IRS and work comp has used this to pay me very little. Many skipped months in back-pay where I have proof I was told not to work by many doctors. I had many e.r. visits etc before work comp finally sent me to a doctor. I have not received help with back medical. When I saw a lawyer over a possible third party law suit, he kept insisting to me that I file suit against work comp. My work comp attorney insists I need to just settle. I can't breathe good at all, had to file disability.The lawyer I spoke with over a possible third party law suit said that I have incredible medical evidence against my employer, which I do. Their delays in sending me to a doctor allowed me to use my own insurance and seek out some of the best doctors in the nation. Which, really I had know choice in the matter as I was so sick and with an unusual toxic exposure at that. This other lawyer says that my work comp case is worth a lot and that I will never get what is due me without filing suit. He seemed incredibly baffeled that my work comp attorney has not filed suit.
