Q. If u tell ur job u can't do a job and its physically hurting you. But they make u do it till I get a doctor excuse
A: In Wisconsin,once you report a work injury as you have done as you describe above, any smart employer would report it immediately to their worker's compensation insurance carrier and take you off that job and refer you to be seen by a doctor of their, or your, selection without further delay. Ask your employer if they have reported your workplace occupational exposure back injury to their worker's compensation insurer, get the claim number, adjuster's name and contact information, and then get in to see an MD that specializes in occupational exposure back injuries right away without further delay. Good luck!
