I work in fast food. I slip on the floor caught myself before the fall... Went home the next day I woke. I couldn't walk. I was sent to the hospital which place me on crutches. I was told to call a specialist. I let my job know of the situation. Specialist said I might of torn my tendon they need x-rays to see more. I was place with a boot and crutches and was to go to therapy had pain pills and Scare's from injury also from the cast I guess before the foot doctor place me with the boot. I ask to return to wrk with the boot. I needed to pay my bills. The co-Owner said not without none Slip's. I went back to my specialist for my regular check up. He said I shouldn't wrk yet. But yes the book is none slip. Give me a paper to take to wrk. Told me to make sure I go to therapy. I couldn't never make it to therapy never had re transportation. I told my employer about my non slip because she wanted proof of it. Gave me the run around. Than said the let me go on like some medical discharge.. I couldn't pay rent that year bills fell behind and all. So applied for workers compensation was Denied. Found someone talk to online went to Court they a no show I went again no-show so I gave up
Additional information is needed to answer your question fully. If your workers' compensation claim was filed and denied with no further appeal, then there is probably no additional remedy for you under workers' compensation law. If your injury occurred four years ago, the two-year statute of limitations in effect at that time would most likely prevent you from filing a successful claim now. I recommend that you contact a workers' compensation attorney who can quickly check the status of your claim and determine if anything further can be done.
