I hope for a speedy recovery, but yes I should be okay... Appriciate the comment
Liberty mutual will call you. Also they will send you some thing asking you to release all your medical info.
If they took you to clinic I assume the dr talked about surgery?
Make sure you keep track of your reduced hours. And tell your adjuster. You will be compensated for the difference.
I went thru it with bilateral inguinal not long ago. No pay til now? Hope I miss understood that,if that’s true the company is denying your rights. Get a lawyer, get the surgery, get paid for all the time loss and don’t come back before 12 weeks off. According to my surgeon who did the surgery one cannot and should not be subjected to heavy lifting before 12 weeks and it takes 24 weeks for the tissues to grow completely into the mesh.
It was like a shady walkin clinic. Kinda where we would get our DOT done. He said 95% of the time surgery is needed. He pasted the info over to workmans comp. Referral still pending. I go back to the same clinic Monday for, well i have no idea. But I'll play the game. Quit nerve wracking when i don't have any info on what to do next, because I received no contact info....
You will. I was just like you years ago with my first one. Easy for me to say now, but just do what they say and enjoy time off with pay and just be honest every step of the way. Your are much better off than some who don't report it till later and get denied workers comp for not telling them a specific time and place it happened.
Absolutely no reason to get a lawyer or overreact like some do at this point. Watch your mail at the address on file with ups for updates from ups, workers comp, and or liberty mutual.
Correct, also if you don't get the same hours you usually work you get paid the difference while on taw
You will get paid weekly by liberty mutual
Lol. After surgery and recovery? Incorrect
Last few months
ups as to go with whatever the doctor notes says if you got hurt at work
I broke my foot at work and could not drive. Ups came and picked me up everyday to sit in the office and do nothing
They must have really wanted to avoid workers comp! Probably much easier for ya
I no longer tell UPS when I get hurt. I go to the doctor, and have the doctor notify them. Doctor sends L and I claim to ups claims manager who then forwards it to the state. The state then approves the claim.
If you lawyer up talk to nobody, not even Slippery Mutual... er.... Liberty Mutual. Let your lawyer do the talking.
As long as it was a work related injury and your claim is not disputed by the company, you should receive workers comp.
How much you receive while out of work and recovering will depend on your state laws.
Here in PA, I believe it works out to be about 60% of the average of the last 3 quarters gross pay - tax free.
Get a lawyer...get a lawyer....get a lawyer. I was out 7 months for knee surgery following a work injury.
