Think twice before taking workmans comp

I was trying to help the IT dept. run wires as they were short handed. I lifted a tile, and before I knew it a rat was in my face. I lost balance as the ladder they gave me was short and I had nothing to grab on to. BAM, on my side on those thin carpet squares they put over concrete. I laid there for several seconds, and then that familiar urge to puke came up(kneecap, kicked in the balls etc..) So our nurse put me on Workmans Comp. I didn`t ask for it, never been on it before, I just felt they knew best. I was and still am injured, but this WC guy keeps calling and harassing me. He tried to record the conversation today, but it sounded like he was using a micro-cassette that had been recorded over too many times. All I could hear were several dull conversations in the background, and not his questions. I guess that pissed him off because he "told me like it is!" I said I`m done with this conversation and to call my doctor. NEVER again. I have a torn ligament, and I`ll give it to the 18th like the doctor said, but I`m going back to work on that day come hell or high water. I get there is fraud, but were talking 2 weeks, and I`m not even getting fully paid. Yeah, I`m living it up!I get it maybe if it goes on for months or years, but 2 weeks and at the first week getting continually harassing phone calls? I`d rather not gotten paid at all. I didn`t ask for it, my work just set it up. It`s not them. Just a warning.

Never do Wc without a lawyer... Ever. Unless it's something ridiculous like a paper cut
