I am fighting lower back (herniated disc and sciatica) pain, why should I now have to fight with WSIB to receive benefits that I'm entitled to as per the act? Just because it was not as sudden as a broken bone or severed limb, this obviously happened over time but it still happened at work. What kind of proof do they expect me to provide? I cannot stand or walk for more than 5 minutes. I've received no income for over 4 weeks now and have had to cancell all my therapy appointments due to the fact that WSIB denied my claim and am now on the hook for over 12 treatment sessions. The therapy that I received did give me some relief but now I feel as I'm regressing back to my original state.
