Was injured in weis supermarket in Easton PA

Asked in Bethlehem, PA , on Oct 14, 2015

I was injured when cases of water fell on me, my eyes were damaged when my glasses was hit and the lenses hit my right eye. I had to have surgery done on my right hand, as my finger was damaged. My right knee was pinned and swollen and damage nerves, i didn’t want to do the surgery to correct that. After my hand was left at 50/50 usage, the Weis insurance company keep transferring me from one claim specialist to another. and it’s getting no where

It sounds like with will need a personal injury attorney to go over the specifics of your case. Slip and fall cases are very case specific, but with the damages you are describing it seems necessary. Fees for personal injury cases are contingent and a referral would be free more than likely. Good luck.

(Pennsylvania Worker's Comp Case) Can a IC's Nurse Case manager talk to the Dr. after my appointment without my permission?

Also if not could the nurse be reported to perhaps the PA Nursing Board for privacy invasion ? I did not sign any of the papers from the nurse. No the nurse did not come in while I was with the Dr. but went in right after I came out, without asking or inviting me in.

The nurse case managers do everything they can to divine permission to inquire into your medical condition, you should be explicit as possible in denying them any past, present or future authority. There is often some paper on file before an attorney is involved. It is a HIPPA violation if they are not authorized. Again, just make sure you have made it clear they have no such authority.
