Hello,

About two weeks ago, I got injured/abused at a physical exam directed by the agency (possibly nerve damage from blood draw/hematoma).
I opened a workers comp case CA-1 which is still undergoing approval; and I am concerned. I may end up with long-term nerve damage as I have lost sensation and other symptoms. I have not gone to the doctors yet as I am afraid I may end up with a bunch of bills and I am still working but in pain. Confused with this whole process and what benefits I am entitled. Someone please give me advice.

I was wondering if the OWCP process (workers comp via DLA) is reliable or should I try to find an attorney to help me with this?
REVISED: actually I called up some lawyers and they said lawyers for federal cases are very limited. No one is willing to take a case because its a whole diff process, with the injured having to pay out of pocket. The best thing is to get help from a federal workers compensation representative.
