Gringo,,,The sad fact is that workmen's comp laws were instituted to partially shield employers from expensive lawsuits. Limits were placed on the amounts of settlements. So much for a missing arm, etc. But lawsuits are still permitted for WC cases. Have you seen a lawyer? If you find one who believes you have a case, he/she'll take it on a contingency basis--no initial cost to you, you pay about 1/3 of any settlement.
Well I didn't expect roses from David
Smith,,,,,,,but the insurance co. stinks
also,,,she didn't do anything about this
case but ignore it, and denying it.
Never made the two appointments she
made with me, to come to my home
I had to call her to see where she was.
and she had the nerve to say "oh I had
two other appts. nearby my office"
Then denied the case.David Smith can'
say what he wants, he doesn't know all the things that happened in this case.
Other's will say they have had problems
that didn't quite fit in the insurnce for
truckers with WC because the people
who wrote this in NC are nuts,
I tried to get one of the writers of the
wc they put into effect, and you can never
round up this guy..and it's mandatory
in NC for truckers to have WC, but
there are too many holes in it, and it
points to the insurance companies to
make the money, and not spend it.
For over l0 years I worked in the insurance field in NYC. and never
saw anything like the people I have had
to deal with it's money,money, in their
That's the problem, and oh yes they
say sickness isn't covered, what the hell
is if not getting ill from your job one way
or the other....long hours, driving and you
all know the rest.
The insurance companies, I would suspect give to the political parties campaign chest....each year, after all
that is found money, and the trucker
pays for it, and suffer's from it. and it
keeps the political person in office.
So, I expected David Smith to have something to say about it, He should
be in my shoes for a while and see
how WC doesn't work for the trucker
but does for the insuance co. at 3%
each payday from your settlement..
So, I don't really care what he had to say
truckers doing all knds of work, can get
hurt and ill, doing their jobs.....
