I am currently going through a workers comensation case and my employer is fighting it due to the fact that he states that I am an independent contractor and not an employee. i have only recently been going to the doctor because my employer did not offer health insurance. Prior to my accident at work in 2011 i was in a motor vehicle accident in 1980 and had a broken hip. My current injuries have nothing to do with my past accident and the doctor signed my medical papers about the injury in 2011. Is there something else that I should do to prove my injuries pertain to the accident in 2011 and not to the accident in 1980?
