Workman's compensation is a joke. The doctors involved are your enemy. What many people don't know is that they can see any physician they want if the injury is job-related and bill workman's comp. The insurance people  direct you to a physician whose only motivation is to deny your claim.

They also play a cute (and illegal) trick. First, you can't start asking for compensation until two weeks have passed. Then, they delay any payments until you get back to work, which may be in three or four months, giving you a lump sum. They will send a friendly person to se you that (seemingly)  has lots of sympathy and all he/she will seek is to record something you say that will reflect adversely on your claim.
