Corrupt workers comp system
I have been at battle with the work comp system for 2 years. The crimes I’ve witnessed by the insurance company are unbelievable.
I have had my medical records falsified as well as changes to the wording of my deposition. My HIPPA (Health Information Privacy, USA) rights have all been violated.
I have been followed (by a private investigator) for six months. They have pictures of me in my doctors office as well as other patients. I have been followed relentlessly and threatened numerous times.
The unethical insurance company and their crooked lawyers are the real criminals here.
I have been awaiting back surgery for over a year but, workers comp refuses to pay for it.
They have also refused chiropractic care, counseling, indirect epidural injection and further physical therapy.
They have spent countless dollars on surveillance yet little on medical treatment.
They stalled my case until my benefits ran out.
I have private insurance but I’m unable to use it because I was injured on the job when I saved a patients life.
