The following story was submitted as a “Guest Post” by an injured worker nicknamed “So Sad” – Again a very real story about the impact that getting injured at work and dealing with workcover insurers can have on real people. Major depression, PTSD and anxiety disorders are, more often than not, caused by the abuses inflicted upon an injured worker by the workcover system, its insurers and their various ‘representatives’ ….
Workcover has destroyed me
By “So Sad”
I was injured at work a few years ago & had major surgery finally after Allianz stuffed me around.
My recovery was complicated & I’ve suffered so many setbacks & complications after surgery.
I’ve been left completely disabled & my life is barely a life anymore.
I’ve been put through so much abuse & suffering at the hands of various Allianz case managers.
The so called “independent” examinations have crippled my depression greatly & I’ve been treated like I’m a criminal, like the accident was my fault.
I live with constant life-like nightmares & am constantly looking over my shoulder watching out for the private investigators filming me.
I’m too frightened to leave the house, to be around people, I’m afraid to the point where I can barely breathe anymore. I don’t sleep or eat anymore and truly wish I’d never been born after all that I’ve been put through.
I receive abusive phone calls from my workplace and Allianz several times a day. It never ends. I’ve been severely under-graded for a permanent disability – of course favouring in Allianz’s side.
I don’t understand how these bast*rds can get away with it. I barely have any fight left in me at this point but I won’t give up as I’m the one who is innocent & I won’t let the b*stards of Allianz win or get away with how they have treated me.
Rot in hell Allianz.
