Hi Justin,

I was also injured as a health care worker, you should of been offered job retraining and given money for that retraining (minus some mandated counselor fees).

But I guess the big question is did you get an attorney? If you didn't you really need to get on that right away.

You also should of filed for your social security benefits as soon as you were injured. Which would be paying you while you look for work up to the point where you gain meaningful employment. And you should be getting a payment for your percentage of disability from your workman comp insurance, either a lump sum or life time medical and monthly payments.

While gunsmithing is a good career have you even been approved for that line of work and given a set of recommended physical limitations?

Like I said if you have not retained a lawyer it is still not to late and you really need to do it.

Good luck!

Heya.

Take Shellshocker's advice and get legal representation. He's right on the money.

Best of luck finding an apprenticeship.

Good on having an attorney for the workman's comp, the bad part is not having one that did SS work also. I'm going to be the bearer of bad news, the process for a first time applicant is long and you will be denied several times (because of your age). Just keep on fighting it and you will eventually get it.

Once again welcome to the site! Firearms are a good distraction for pain and rehab.

Sucks you have to wait that long.

From people that I know who have been through this it's very much the case. You'll win but they make you fight long and hard for it. I think it's BS, especially when others can get other services much easier when they're not as critical. Gotta love our broken system. Welcome to the club, and try to call around to local manufacturers and stores to see if they have a need. If you're willing to start off as an intern of sorts it may be harder for them to say yes to free help.
