Glad for you Auggie! How much time passed from the moment you reported injury to treatment? Were you with Fed Ex at the time? I would curious to see if Sedgewick handle claims differently for different clients?

Hows your back now my friend?

I have been holding out for the company to step up. Something tells me when I get a lawyer, my employment with Schneider is over. I very much enjoyed working for Schneider bulk Ecolab dedicated.

Your time there may not be over. The lawyer will ask you if you want to return to work there or not. He/she will handle the case accordingly based on your answer to that question. If you want to return they will be a mediator until you are healed and back to work pending the company wants you back. If not, they will play hardball for your medical expenses, out of work pay and eventually a fair case ending settlement.

I went through this with a lower back injury many years ago. I wanted to return and company wanted me back but was physically unable to due to masonry work requiring constant heavy lifting.

It’s a shame that so many people have abused the system causing it to be this way. You shouldn’t have to fight when your proven to be injured. I wish you luck and hope you heal up and get back to work

Always wondered why Workers Comp lawyers advertised.

After reading your post, now I know.

That said, I was out for about 8-weeks due to an injury. Sedgwick managed the claim. Nary a problem. They kept in communication and I was paid like clockwork. They never bothered me about going back to work. That happened on my schedule and, actually, was quite glad to get back off my ass and working again.

Not my back but my arm. Sedgwick was great. They just managed my treatment and pay went without a hitch
