Have you ever filed a workmanship comp claim? If so did it work out for you?

Yes, and I won. For severe carpal tunnel on my right rust from repetitive action over many years. I had to prove the postal service was responsible. I had to write a detailed history of my work career and jobs I had including military. And what

I do in my spare time. Then I had to get meticulous doctors notes from an Orthopaedic surgeon stating in his expert opinion that injury was caused by work. It saved me thousands in medical bills. I needed surgery to correct it.

As a student my jobs have been less structured. No WC claims yet.

I filed one when I worked for Starbucks and it worked out fine. When I called they rambled on for at least 20 minutes explaining how everything works and making sure that I understood every bit of what needed to happen. It's pretty intense...

I've had two, one resulting in a label of permanently partially disabled. Mine were pretty clear-cut, as the injuries were witnessed by others and could not be linked to any past injury. There are a lot of people who cheat the system, though.

The fraud is probably why the guy said not to expect anything from a claim. It discourages the fake injuries or the ones that people blame on work when it's really not work-related.

I just had to go to a mandatory meeting at work about workman's comp. The guy talked for a little over an hour. It would have been a lot quicker if he just would have said "don't think that you will ever get anything out of a claim."
