You have come to the right place to ask for help and advise
I am sorry that you were injured on the job and have lost 2 fingers, nobody should have to go through that.
Unfortuantly you cannot seek remedy through the courts because of Exclusive Remedy. This law is in effect
to protect the employer from lawsuits from injured workers.
We as injured workers are forced to accept what the Workmans comp companys are willing to give
These companys do not pay for pain and suffering. I hope that you filed a claim for your injuries.
Has you comp carrier paid your medical bills since you accident.
A few thousand dollars is nothing compared to what you have had to endure.
If we had more info about your case I'm sure that we can help you out.
I am sorry that you have had to lose fingers because of someone's carelessness.
