Unhappy WRONGED BY WCB ALBERTA AND SASKATCHEWAN

I am in Alberta Canada currently. In March of 2008 I was injured on the job and tore the miniscus in my knee, 3 doctors said so. I went on WCB, they sent me to their doctor and their doctor said that it was just a sprain and to do physio. I did physio and it did NO GOOD AT ALL!!! I tried to reason with them and they were not hearing any of it. I could no longer do my job as a delivery driver because of my knee...that was in Saskatchewan, I was on WCB from March until December 2008, they cut me off without warning and said because I finished my physio I was able to go back to work and that was that, no more discussion.

Then in October 2009, I re-injured the same knee. I had gotten a brace for my knee (as suggested by a doctor) and was climbing down off a truck and my knee gave out and I fell on it...tearing the miniscus even farther, the pain is horrible, I can't work cause I am a WCB risk and WCB wont even help me. I asked for an exploratory and WCB refused to even go there. I am backed against the wall with no way to turn. This is stupid and I am fed up...please help

I would like to inform you that if you have been wronged by WCB you may file a suit against WCB. In this you have suffered injury and at present your knee injury still exists but you may perform other jobs in which your knee injury does not effect like some sitting jobs. You may show that WCB has made you suffer and claim compensation for past pain and your future inability to do same job. Further WCB acts of not allowing you to get an employment will also entitle you to get compensation in this regard.

My husbands case is almost exactly the same as this one. He injured his shoulder at work and wcb told him it was s a strain, after nine months of not knowing what was wrong and his condition worsening, they said he had finished his job retraining, which was a joke, whims and first aid. Also they said he was fit to work again even though his doctor advised against it they just cut him off and without warning, a phone call was it. He was on benefits for nine months and not properly diagnosed as to what was wrong with his shoulder, a strain is unacceptable!!! What do we do? There seems to be nothing we can do?

There is a consulting company out of Red Deer called IWC that does work for people who are having problems with WCB.
Their number is 1-403-342-4095. I spoke to a man named Val.
hope this helps!

"The Fairness Board" ha Ha thats a JOKE; They deliberately sent you on a wild goose chase, there's nothing fair at WCB, in reality they are corporate psychopaths, Look up Type 4 narcissist psychopathic managers, read carefully so you will understand the kind of people you are dealing with;
[get a lawyer asap, cross your fingers the lawyer doesn't take your cash and due zip]

If I were you I would try to get the funds to go out of country for medical care, cause you will likely be sent to a WCB paid qwack doctor who will make your injury 10 times worse;

I also could use some help with them.
I am still waiting on a claim after 10 months.
It is frustrating dealing with them.
