Workers comp is a racket and a joke... It serves only itself and the companies, NOT the people they say they provide for. They make you see THEIR doctors who are paid to lie and deny anything is wrong. As if not getting paid isnt bad enough, after the ordeal you now have it in your records that you're fine and or a whiner with psychosomatic issues and can't get medical help, especially if you're in pain. People who get hurt at work often work through their injury and don't report it now because the pay isn't enough if you live paycheck to paycheck--causing further injury and pain. People in unions can sometimes avoid this, but for everyone else you're at the mercy of a lackadasical at best insurance company and greedy doctors that violate the oath they took to "do no harm." This is so obvious and common I don't know how nothing has been said or done by now.

I'm signing because Workman's Comp is unfair. I was turned down years ago because my job was considered Repitishous. I was an office assistant. I input data into the company computer. Filed papers, used copier,fax, phone,ran errands for needed office supplies, used scanner, came up with a form for the construction company to use for return of rented big equipment, helped with payroll, key holder to company, opened and closed company,signed for mail or items,checked mail daily and distributed it out, used messenger on computer to contact Boss/owner or Head/ Lead Personal on sites out of town. I was a big help to the company. But after experiencing acute pain when keying in info while on the company computer they didn't want Workmen's Comp to pay me. They fought my case all the way and tried to make it look like it didn't happen at work. My co-worker even went against me. I know they made her do it because she called me and talked to me about it. I told her if she didn't do like they wanted they'd probably get rid of her. I even got a lawyer to help me fight my case. It did not work. Workmen's Compensation turned me down and I never received any compensation due to my medical issues from that job. Something definitely needs to be done to The States Systems for Workman's Comp to effectively work properly for the people, not against the people.
Now my husband was injured once again on his job as a Truck Driver. His Company told him to file Workmen's Comp. Maybe this time around he will get his. Last time years ago. They paid him for lost wages but wouldn't help him get his much needed surgery. Reason was to expensive they said. So he suffered for years and turned down for 6 years for Disability. Then couldn't pay his Child Support. The Judge told him if he wasn't getting Disability then he is not Disabled and had to go back to work so he could pay his Child Support Payments or go to Jail. Can we say so Very Unfair ! Our Court Systems Suck just as bad as Workmen's Comp Insurance does. God Bless us all that have suffered and still suffering from pains, injuries, or from repeat injuries due to having to be made to work when you're really Disabled to.

The corruption in the workers' compensation system needs to be made a major expose' in the people's media and expose the doctors who hire out as insurance prostitutes for corrupt insurance adjusters who are getting wealthy at the expense of workers everywhere. We must never give up.
