Workers Compensation, How does this really work?
I have been going to the doctor with a injury to my wrist. They sent me to one doctor whom referred me to an specialist after a few weeks. I seen the specialist whom says its a cyst on my wrist that needs to come off. Today I seen the doctor that I first seen whom referred me to the specialist and two other guys why would he be on my job? I am a little worried I have never had to file a claim before is this routine. I am on light duty right now and my employeer really needs me back on my job could that be the reason. They were only out there looking at my job for a brief period and they went into a meeting. Why would this be. I am waiting on approval from the specialist to have the cyst removed what could be going on. They sent me to one doctor for like two weeks and he did the x-ray and said they were fine. However the specialist says I have a ganglion cyst and want to do a nerve study also. The work I do is a repetitive motion on the rest for eight hours in a day. We have two more other ladies in there working now ready to file claims for cyst on their arms also. One lady has had both hands operated on for carpal tunnel since Dec 2006.

from what i am understanding, the insurance adjusters are there at your job to see if what you were doing is really what caused your cyst. not always do the adjusters view the work area but they can. if the doctor has stated to you that the injury came from the type of work you do, then you should be approved for the...
