The insurance companies bend over backwards to avoid responsibility for your injury and medical bills. You could loose an injury and they could call it a flesh wound. Much of the value of your case is based on the acknowledged or proved injury – they probably called yours a strain. You honestly need to fight for every bit of ground in one of these cases. The bright side is that you appear to have advised your supervisor of a work injury and still appear to be within the period to file a claim. I would talk to someone about the actual facts of the case though because there is no way to get what you need from a website. Good luck.
