worker's compensation timeline
I was injured on the job in May 2007. I reported the injury at that time but denied opening an actual claim for treatment. The pain worsened and in October 2007, I asked for a claim. It was opened, and I received modest treatment. Then, I left the job voluntarily to move to another state. The injury continued to worsen. I asked for the claim to be reopned in Feb. 2008 and it was opened, but the carrier denied authorizing any treatment. I attempted treatment from them from February 2008 until August 2008 and they denied the whole time. I finally obtained a job, risking further injury, just to get health ins and treatment. I finally received treatment (under my own health ins. policy) and the injury was found by MRI to be much worse than I thought. Is it too late to continue with this claim and how do I get them to authorize treatment in another state?
