I WAS INJURYED BY A...
I WAS INJURYED BY A STUDENT (TRIPPED ME) TO THE FLOOR. I FELL ON MY KNEES AND LEFT SIDE IN OCTOBER . THROUGH WORKER COMP. I ONLY HAD 6 SESSIONS OF PT. THIS WAS ONE MONTH LATER IN NOVEMBER. THIS SITUATION HAS BEEN VERY STRESSFUL EVEN THOUGH I WENT TO WORK IN PAIN. PT SUGGESTED TO USE A CAN AND KNEE WRAP TO HELP WITH THE PAIN IN MY KNEES. (IT REALLY HELPED). THEN I WAS SENT TO ANOTHER DOC. FOR OT BUT HE ONLY TALKED AND WROTE NOTES.
THERE IS SO MUCH MORE TO MY SISTUATION I AM A TEACHER THAT IS DEDICATED TO THE JOB, BUT MY FAMILY PHYSICIAN WROTE ME OUT OF WROTE BECAUSE OF STRESS AND THE ENVIRONMENT THAT I CONTIUNED TO HAVE TO WORK IN...BUT OT DOC SAID THAT HE WOULD NOT WRITE A LEETER FOR ME TO GO HOME FOR REST. SO I HAVE TO USE MAY SICK DAYS IN ORDER TO BE PAID FOR THE TIME THAT I AM OUT BECAUSE OF THE CLASSROOM SISTUATION. HOW CAN I PROCEED FOR WORKERS COMP. TO PAY FOR MY TIME OUT RECOVER.
