I'm sorry, but more details are needed in order to determine how to best assist you. What's the size of the company? Did they offer you worker's compensation? How were you injured? How are your medical bills currently being covered? What type of claim are you seeking?
We AVVO attorneys are unable to reach out to Questioners first, but you are free to message any of us that you choose in order to begin a free consultation and discuss your issue more in-depth.
B/C you say you were hurt at work this is in the wrong class so I will change that for you to wc.
If you have not filed a wc claim with DWC by completing a DWC form 41, I suggest you do so. It must be filed within a year. Also DWC offers fee assistance for those that need help with their claim. It has been my experience that eye injuries seldom result in an impairment rating so you may want to obtain help now rather than later.
I am hopeful my answer is "HELPFUL" and/or is a good answer?" If so, I would appreciate you for noting same. Thank you. The information contained herein is not to be construed as legal advice.
