Seems like I need to clarify a few things just in case.
Number one and above all, I do not hold my employer responsible for my situation at all.
I have not and will not ever even consider any kind of legal action against them either.
I got hurt at work through no fault of them or myself really, it just happened and I ruptured my bicep tendon.
I had surgery to repair this and in the process the doctor damaged my radial nerve.
I have lost partial use of my right (dominant) hand because of this.
If, I repeat IF I do consult an attorney it will be because of malpractice by the doctor.
I will go a step further and say if for some crazy reason, if I sue the doctor and it effects my employer in ANY way I will drop it and walk away, period.
I hate the mere thought of even talking to a lawyer, much less taking legal action against anyone, but he did indeed screw up.
I will just see how it all plays out.
In fact the way I understand workers comp, my company is gonna end up paying more because of him and that just ain't right.
Anyway, as everyone has told me, it could be worse so it ain't the end of the world.
Worst part is trying to cast a rod and reel.
Tired of my beard too, but it is just too dang hard to shave left handed so I let it grow.
Hey, who knows, maybe I will start duck hunting and get to get paid to say fear the beard.
