I am totally over it after three years of this workcover circus of a system.
I was injured at work and went through hell to get the appropriate treatment which consisted of major back surgery. When I was finally allowed to have the surgery by Allianz, my surgeon told me they waited to long and that the surgery was not going to be of much help anymore.
I am now suffering the consequences of their immoral delays and my doctors have put me off of work for the foreseeable future.
The insurance company sent me to an IME surgeon and he said I am unfit for all work. My employer then terminated my permanent position.
This caused me to slip into a major depression and I tried to kill myself.
Then the insurance company sent me again to another IME, this one, a very old man (must have been 80) wrote that I can do “light office duties, part time” and since then the insurance company has assigned me a vocational rehab person who tells me every week that I am not trying hard enough to find a job and that I have to get a job within 3 weeks otherwise they will cut me off benefits.
Last week this vocational man told me that he had even people with no arms can work as they can hold a pen in their mouth!
But my own treaters refuse to issue a certificate of capacity, even with restrictions, it does’nt make any sense to me that Allianz forces me to look for a job and work based on one senile IME.
How on earth can they get away with harassing me on a weekly basis? They say they will stop my weekly payments in three week’s time regardless whether or not I have a job by then.
