    Angry Not Being Accommodated By Employer After a Workers Comp Injury

    My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: NH
    Hello all im just going to keep this short and sweet and to the point . I got a neck injury on the job in sept 09 and got put on alternative duty thru the temp agency i worked for .I worked in there office from sept 09 to may 2010 and it's been a night mare . My question is what can i do as for retaliation against my employer legally on the following :

    my employer would run to there doc i seen for me to work full time when other specialist or other doctor's wanted me to work part time or try to pull me out of work in general.

    I was supposed to get a ergonomic evaluation seeing im 6'8 and the station did not suit me at all and it was doctor ordered but it was never done just was blown off.


    also im not getting any cash benefit's from there insurance seeing i was fired in may and the ins told me i was not eligible for anything but medical i did apply for unemployment as well and been denied that as well but i have a tribunal meeting on the phone which my employer appealed for.

    So im out of options and dont know what to do and looking for a lawyer is nearly impossible to hear me out . Any input would be grateful Thank's

    Your post is nearly unintelligible due to poor grammar and spelling.

    Re your injury, you should have your own attorney. With a neck injury, especially, you need one.

    There is no LAW requiring that you get a ergonomic evaluation; the doctor does not run the employer's business.

    Not getting cash benefits from whom? The Worker's Comp carrier?

    Why were you denied UI benefits? What exactly did the letter say? Probably doesn't matter, though, since the window to file an appeal was very small.

    Im not getting any cash benefit's from the carrier due to being fired in may but they took them in February due to my full time employment on Modified duty. I was also Denied UI for the same reason of being fired but my employer submitted an appeal and it say's illness/injury and ability . As for the doc ordered ergonomic evaluation it's still ordered and the ins and employer has to comply.But me being 6 foot 8 inches tall i dont fit under tables or into chairs like alot of other people.
