    Many injured workers rely on action on the part of DWC and Statutory oversight to make sure appropriate constitutionally mandated delivery of benefits and services to the injured workers are made on a timely basis. That constitutionally protection to injured workers are being push aback in priority and is becoming a political issue and a burdensome to the individual’s and his or her family rather than maintaining the quality standard of life to those impacted by the industrial injuries. Do DWC actually think 10 years wait is a “reasonable time”? If not, why is it taking this much time?

    I had a major injury in 1992 and State Compensation Ca.followed the court order for lifetime coverage until two years ago when they abruptly stopped paying for all medication and requests from my Pain Management doctor.
    I suffer from chronic back, shoulder and knee pain, unable to get help from 3 Workmans comp court appearances. My denial letters are always followed by a request for UR review which are always denied.
    My case was sent to SSI set aside, they estimated a lifetime cost of approx. $960,000 which of course they denied.
    Can someone please guide me to someone or somewhere I can get help.
    My Attorney suffered from a heart attack and had to retire so I an acting Pro Per as I cannot find a lawyer who is willing to help.
