hi, i had a whiplash and lower back injury in 1989 (mva), it
took me 13 years to get full benefits from the wsib. i had to
prove that i cannot lift any thing over 20 lbs or repetitive
bending- sit or stand for more than 20 minutes. no company was
willing to hire me. lets face it, no company is gonna baby
i have been suffering from dizziness and head pains since the
accident not realizing that the headpains and dizziness were
part of the accident.
just by share luck i was going through my file and i
discovered that the headpain and dizziness were reported from
the time of the accident report.
wsib sent me to 4 different hospitals to do mri, ct, and eeg.
in one medical report, the md stated that the headpains,
dizziness and trapezious muscle discomforts were the result of
the motor vehicle accident. i almost flipped when i found that
memo. there are about 4 more reports like that. i sent them to
the adjudicator; im now waiting for her response.
this adjudicator always give me a hard time. i am just
waiting to see what she is gonna do with this.
