Class A commercial truck driver, 120 barrel tanker Vac truck for removal and transportation hazardous material. Work for Environmental company with L.A. harbors and refineries. Safety/lead called me off truck to help carry large pipe with crew. Shoulder dislocation, Surgery replace tendon and repair 2 rips in rotator cup. Much financial hardship and bills backed up, mortgage late but manageable, I have been taken care of well medically, but company may not have position for me and a little worried at sudden change in their interests and they have not returned my calls. I think I played my cards wrong on this. May need attorney?No pryer work injuries. I have excellent work ethics and history. Health great, strong prideful Bull of the Woods kind of individual but lack of knowledge in the legal or handling of such things as worker comp that I feel may bite me in the ass in trusting employer. I spent over 2 years in Iraq as a civilian providing towing/recovery service embedded with the U.S. Marines supply convoys... not a scratch, lost 6 friends over there and I come home and get injured on job here in the states... Irony! Wife and I are worried about bills. As well, have my 91 year old saint of a mother that we care for but wife is only financial provider now. I'll be glad to get back to work however, my paycheck wont be enough to get us back on financial stability after debts acquired during this injury. Thank you for any advice, help or service in this matter, Jake
