NYS Common Errors, Help - Bernie57 - 02-25-2009 12:12 AM
I am from Upstate, NY. I tore my rotator cuff (L) 3.5" at work in front of all.
Cashier 4 yrs, injury 6/26/2005.
Had my SSD hearing yesterday, Had health problems prior & restrictions. WC Case dropped my case one month after surgical failure. Many had dropped the ball on this case. I wish to report some of these actions so they are not repeated. Every one states no one is in charge of this including Lawyer. I want to know who is the oversite person or committee in NYS. Here are a few tidbits.
When injured, HRM refused to send in injury form to employer headquarters, sent Heart Attack. The next day I brought in DRS out of work slip, for shoulder injury My worker's comp claim was automatically contested. (no heart attack).
Waited from 6/05 to 10/05 for ortho appt. Ortho can decline on any contested WC caim.
Took from 7/05/05 to 2/06 for MRI approval, 3 doctors requested.
This was after 3 hearings & retained lawyer;(9/05), & IME visit.
Took until 4/21/2006 for surgical proceedure, with medical prompts.
P/T CXL'D 3x's d/t lack of insurance payments, still have hundreds of dollars of ins covered services on credit report.
Total hearings 9. Case closed 1 year after surgery & one month after confirmed surgical failure. Lawyer quit 4 months later.
The rest is just too long to list, all similar. I thought it was lieutenant governor, thought wrong. Someone needs to be responible. Please point me in correct direction. We can't stop it by keeping quiet. Thanks a Plenty

You are great person with great advice. This has been going on since 2005.
I had seen this page before but thougth it was about the NY Insurance Co that turned out to be just another ins. co. Even they could not help me. I am so glad that you were able to.
Thank you for your help. Bernie57
