    Yesterday morning I recieved an ass kicking by 5 or so guys at my work while on the clock. I got a wicked concussion that I went to the ER about, my glasses are smashed and my watch is broken. Like any honest American, I'm going to try to score some money out of the situation. The Doc told me to take two nights off, so I need some fucking compensation. I Ive been told mixed things about workers comp and Im hoping someone here has firsthand experience. Everyone I've talked to does agree on one thing: workers comp will try to fuck you over. Hollar at me

    Hahaha, yeah, what the fuck did you do to get your ass handed to you by 5 other guys?

    A guy I work with flipped the shop golf-cart when he was tearing around the shop and managed to shatter his ankle. He got WC for the entire summer, sweet deal!

    Fifteen months of my life, two lawyers, and (no shit) a hundred grand later...it's a scam in my state. Get a good lawyer, they'll get your back.

    i thought i saw a guy pissing on our property so i confronted him and his friends. One sucker punched me, I whooped up on him, and when it was very apparent he was not going to win the fight, all his boys jumped in and I got the stompage. Funny thing is I never took any feet/fists to the face, so with my clothes on I look fine.

    And, I've done research for the State Comp board....So, I can safely say that they are so crooked that they have to screw their pants on in the morning. Fuck those guys- get paid, mang...that's what they deduct money fom your check for. It sounds like you have a squeaky clean claim as long as you weren't at fault...I highly doubt that the guys who rolled you up are going to come forward and testify against you on Comp's behalf, though.

    Well, that sounds pretty good to me...I didn't look fucked up either, but I couldn't lift my right arm until I got into PT...then, when i finally screamed that I was in miserable fucking pain, ow ow ow it hurts it hurts, the (company) doctor sent me in for a MRI...I found out that I had a herniated disc and bone spurs in my neck that were putting pressure on my spinal cord. In the end, it turns out that I'm 40% disabled for the rest of my life since I can't fully turn my head and I have nerve damage in my right hand that's bad enough to make my fingers feel numb yet tingly most of the time.

    Oh, yeah- the more you bitch, the better the care seems to be. And, unless you're a junkie and there's medical evidence of that, the free pharmaceutical hookup is bangin'. Most Comp doctors see a LOT of people, so mostly they want to keep you chilled out as much as legally possible.

    Just think, you can bump up that 12 oz. status now...and get paid to watch the Cosby show.

    in alot of states one thing they do is drug test people that are trying to make a claim for workers comp so that way they can use the influence of drugs against you. You are most likely going to need a good attorney. My dad had a LONG LONG LONG battle with the wc board when I was growing up and it ended up turning into a big lawsuit. Those mother fuckers are crooked as hell and will do what ever they can to not give you money.
