I lost my job back in 2009. I had fallen and hurt myself 2 times at that job. I lost my job for personal reasons so I was eligible for unemployment. I had to wait 3 months so I lost my place to live. I finally got my benefits and progressively over the next few years I got more and more disabled. I filed for Disability but his time waited almost 3 years. I feel that I could have received more money in my settlement from the first attorney who represented me on the Workmen's Compensation claim. I was told at the beginning that I would receive more than I actually ended up with. Every day is a fight. I suffer from so many different ailments from this job that there are days I wish were dead.

Consult a workers compensation attorney and see if your case can be reopened.

Sorry to hear about your situation. I agree with the previous poster, you may want to consult with a local Workers' Compensation Lawyer to address your specific claim. I also suggest you visit the Workers' Compensation Center as a good resource to learn more about this subject matter.
