I had an on the job leg injury at the end of 2018 (ruptured quad, torn patellar tendon, torn meniscus, broken tibia) that required quite a bit of surgical repair and almost a year of rehab after recovery. I bounced back pretty well considering all things and that my surgeon said nothing at all was promised in rehab. I had to do an FCE in January and was given only 1 small restriction that basically did eliminate delivery ever again but I can still do most any inside job and/or feeders without any accommodations. The reason for my post is that the company has obviously blocked all attempts to get back on the job since my release in January of this year and the union has not been on it as much as I’d hoped. I keep getting “we’re staying on it” kind of answers and yet almost no progress in 8 months. What other options do I have or how should I proceed from here? Should I hire an attorney and litigate the issue? Why is the union letting it go this long and not had the utmost urgency? I’ve dealt with multiple officers at the hall and they don’t even seem to be talking to each other internally about my case. Sometimes when we speak it’s almost like I’m updating them on an issue they haven’t heard about when we’ve been discussing it for the better part of a year. It’s extremely frustrating and I’m worried that getting back to work is something that may not happen, I never dreamed before that was even a possibility. Any and all thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.
