Q: Can my husband get a huge check after getting struck by lightning?

A while back my husband got struck by lightening on the job along with 3 other people on a field. the dairy gave him workers comp. But just yesterday he found out not even by his boss but by an ex-employee he was fired; due to getting contractors to do their job. My Husband worked on the fence crew, making barbed wired fences for the dairy.My husband is still severely injured, what if they stop workers comp? He doesn't have insurance as he is no longer employed. How can he go to another dr.The doctors that he is going to refuse to see how injured he is. he has exist wounds from the lighting that are disgusting. yet the doctor only puts honey on them...HONEY.Not only that, where are we going to get money for our expenses. They said they would give him a check as "compensation". We don't know for how much. I'm sure a simple little check wont hold us off for even a few weeks.

They just dropped him from his job with no compassion. Can we have a case to fight this?

A: Contact a member of the Fla Justice Assn that handles comp--they give free consults. Your husband needs to find out when he can go to a doctor of his own choosing. Generally that's all your husband will get.
