2 Questions Answered
Q. If i had a stroke which resulted in a brain anurism, can i get compensation from the company?
A: You may have a valid workers' compensation claim, but you may also have other remedies for what has happened to you. However, it is impossible to provide an informative answer with the information you have provided here. I would recommend calling a workers' compensation attorney and also an attorney that handles employment discrimination cases (or one that handles both) so that you get solid answers to your questions. Good luck to you.
Q. I'm going through Work Comp now to deal with my carpal tunnel. I have had visits w/ a Dr. prior trying to avoid WC.
A: It is somewhat difficult to provide a complete answer without knowing more detail. But, generally speaking, prior medicals may be relevant to demonstrate a pre-existing condition, to prove that the injury is non-industrial, and they also may be helpful to your case, depending on how long you have been with your employer. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a progressive injury and must be pled as such. You have a right to obtain self-procured medical treatment under certain circumstances, but if your employer is not aware of your injury, then it is tougher to argue that they are obligated to provide you benefits. You would be well-advised to call an attorney that handles these types of cases, at least to discuss your options. Best of luck.
