PP (paramedic daughter) is getting royally screwed over by workman’s comp in northern California for an on the job injury.
Between the misdiagnosis of her foot issue (she walked around on a broken foot for three months), the lack of updating when the doctor FINALLY admitted that (never updated WC record of diagnosis), diagnosis of lower back pain as ‘strained’, and now WC refusal for MRI to try to determine further extent of injuries including why she has circulation issues in the foot, reduction of the physical therapy, cutting of pain meds, and her finally getting her own appointment for an ortho consult for her back (also denied by WC), she’s looking for a lawyer to talk to.
So if any of you folks on the left coast know a GOOD workman’s comp lawyer around Sacramento, or an investigative reporter that’s interested in a story about how paramedics get treated by the system, let me know and I’ll pass it along.
If I could afford it, I’d have already paid for the best damn lawyers I could find, but I simply can’t do that. She just wants to get fixed and get back to work. She’s frustrated, bored, and tired of hurting every damn day.
Thanks in advance for any information.
