Workcare and the process, can anyone advise me
Afternoon all, i took my hubby with me and had a meeting with my boss. Because I was doing an errand for them I was actually working so we have sat down together to complete the paperwork. Under workcover claim. And they are happy to pay for all medical expenses incurred.
I was reading through the doctors notes and treatment that he printed off for me , and discovered that there are discrepancies in the information. I told him I was unsure wether the car had hit me , and yet he put down that I denied the car hit me!! What the??
And he states that there was nil pain, and yet the next line he iwas ordered an X-ray on my hip due to pain.
As he is leaving the clinic after tomorrow I have made an appointment with him to discuss the discrepancies and I also need to get a certificate of capabilities from him for workcover. I am taking hubby along with me as support as I am having trouble processing information due to all the painkillers I am on.
So if anyone can give me some advice on the processes of workcare I would be grateful as I have no idea how it all works.
I am intending to have osteo treatment soon once all the swelling in my soft tissu has gone down a little, and am considering seeing a psychologist in regards to the trauma and flashbacks. I am thinking that these services will be available through workcare, am I correct?
Thanks in advance for any information
I need to advise you that from Chronic Pain Australia's position in running this Forum to simply support those who suffer chronic pain, I'm afraid we cannot give you any advice on how to deal with your application to Work Cover.
As for the experiences of other members of this forum. I cannot see how they can help you, because their experiences will be greatly different to yours. Not only that, you have not said what you actually want help with.
I'm sorry, but I have to step in here to voice my concern, because this is a legal matter and I would be remiss in my responsibility as an Administrator of this Forum, if I did not warn you off collecting ad hoc and unqualified advice from this forum and not actually advise you to seek the proper legal assistance that would be much more suitable under these circumstances.
Can I assume that you are in a Union or Association??
If so, then that is the most appropriate place to get advice and help, plus if you pay Union Dues, then the advice should be free.
Sorry we can't help further, but this is not the place to get legal advice.
