My husband had his mediation hearing today to see if we could settle out of court. We live in Michigan and from what I am told by my husband's lawyer and the mediator, the laws here are for the big companies, not the injured workers. I decided to see what I could find out for myself, as we do not trust any of these people. It just isn't fair. We don't know the law and therefore we feel very vulnerable.
By reading the messages posted here, I feel at least some sort of support. And obviously this problem is nationwide. At this point we don't know if we should take a settlement. Our other options seemed even worse. My husband is only 40, but he has had 2 surgeries on his shoulder for rotator cuff tears and he also has CTS. His injuries have changed our lives in so many ways. Surgeons will not operate on him because of this being work related--it's ridiculous. His other shoulder is also injured due to overuse and an injury which occurred in therapy for his other shoulder! He has not received any money since Nov. 1999 when he was let go. It's been very rough. And we are at the end of our rope.
