Liberty Mutual Insurance Co. Complaint - Should Be Punished - Workers Comp Insurance
MISSOURI -- Liberty Mutual is my husband\'s company workers comp carrier. My husband was at work on 3/18/09 and was hurt (2 witnesses). He went to the hospital, went to his own doctor and received a script that he was not to return to work until further evaluation. He went to the company's doctor and to this day, he has not received on workers comp check. My husband\'s company was very disrespectful to him, told him he was not getting paid for the time off because even with a doctor's note, they said he has to call in everyday and say he wasn't going to be there. So he started calling and than they told him they couldn't talk to him (his supervisor's) that he had to call the main office. We sent an email to the main office and received a very snotty reply stating that he did not have to call in or email, but still has not received a check. As soon as they told him he would not get paid for time off, he had to seek an attorney. So next month he should be going to court for back wages, attorney fees and court cost is what the attorney wants.
My husband had a referral from his doctor to see a pain management doctor and Liberty Mutual denied that. Liberty Mutual needs to read the workers comp laws because they are in big defiance with them and I hope workers comp sees this.
