I was injured at work and my doctor ordered surgery.The injury occurred when a third party moved equipment while I was working My employers insurance had their IME see me and of course they denied the claim. Had a hearing regarding surgery with WCC and they ordered the surgery. However, my "attorney" didn't file a claim for lost wages. I'll be out of work for 4-5 months with post-op procedures. How can I get the money that I lost for being off of work because my employer wouldn't honor the "light work" and "sedentary" duties ordered by my RX? I lost a total of 2 1/2 weeks. Also, I had a co-worker kick me in my knee that's scheduled for surgery next month. Who can I sue for my lost wages? Should I get another lawyer to handle this as well?
