Tyson Foods - Work Compensation is a joke!
I was injured on the job at a Tyson Foods plant.Tyson attorney admitted in court that I was injured on the job and they accepted responsibility.
I rec'd "emergency" medical care and then nothing. When I returned to court, the Judge asked me if all the medical bills had been paid. When I responded with "I haven't been able to go to a Dr. because Tyson won't let me"...the Tyson attorney quickly informed the Judge that he would personnally guarantee I would get medical treatment.
After another couple of months, I got an appt in St Louis with a Tyson Dr. who did nothing except write a large report stating nothing was wrong with me. It's been 2 years now and because of intense pain, I got a MRI via my credit card and the MRI revealed I needed emergency surgery. I had surgery last Wed and alot of the pain is gone.
It is sad that a major corp will pay off a Dr. to state nothing is wrong so they can deny medical treatment.
It's even sadder for a Dr.to get all that education and sell himself out...guess he couldn't make a living treating and helping people....what a loser!!!
