Workers compensation is a system of laws with guidelines and procedures that vary from occupation to occupation, and from state to state. If you have been injured on the job you will need an experienced workers compensation lawyer to guide you thru the complex maize of insurance companies, medical benefits  IME's, (independent medical exams) and  forms. Remember it is not in your employers or their insurance carriers best interest for you to stay out of work and collect benefits. They will do their utmost to avoid it. If your employer did not get the mandatory workers comp insurance you will need a lawyer to look into third party liability, a personal or other means of protecting your best interests.  Workers compensation cases can often pit the interests of a sick or injured worker against the interests of an employer. And rest assured, your employer is not on your side. For this reason, the workers' compensation claim process can be adversarial and difficult and will often necessitate the use of an aggressive job injury lawyer who is experienced with regard to workers' compensation claims.

The mesh implants were supposed to free them from the intimate discomforts that millions of women face after childbirth and as they age: pelvic organ prolapse, in which stretched, weakened tissues can allow the bladder or other organs to sag or bulge into the vagina, and stress urinary incontinence, which can lead to involuntary leakage with every laugh or cough. Once implanted, the hammock-like mesh was meant to shore up the supportive pelvic tissues and help keep sagging organs in place." (Online source).
