  1. My brother and I have been sexually assaulted on the job. The perpetrator was our floor supervisor and union representative. The act against my brother was caught on CCTV and is in the hands of the RCMP. The perpetrator is currently at work and we are being treated horribly. We both now have PTSD and WCB is not helping. I would like to talk with someone who might be able to assist us. If anyone can talk with us we would appreciate it.

  2. I have been fighting Nova Scotia WCB for 43 years, and getting no where. I cannot seem to get enough evidence to support my case anymore, as most doctor and hospital records have been destroyed. Now I am trying for chronic pain, while totally reviewing my file I noticed that in 1975 the employers doctor wanted a psychological opinion done, so WCB at that time sent me to a regular medical doctor. I thought they had to send you to a Psychiatrist to have this done. I suffered a traumatic work accident in 1975, which changed my life forever. I have read all kinds of court decisions, and it seems that I am right, but WCB always want more. I cannot afford a lawyer, and the injured workers group in Sydney NS is now down to one advocate for 800 workers. Would anyone know of any other resources that can be used. I will fight this until they put me in the ground, but that is what they want anyway.

  3. i am a injured worker since 2007 january 17 from a head injury.i have been having non stop pain in my head its in my brain my eyes face down the right side and back all day long.my eyes feel as someone is pouring somekind of turbine or something in them all the time my brain is like you are just sick and tired of grabbing your head a heading to a counch to lay down.i was managing my pain then the doctors passed this new law because i do not know and why it should effect me.and i don’t like the way they think they can talk and threaten you if you don’t go along with the program.i would like to talk to someone about this and to find out what lawyer you can call to get some kind of help.and to find out what i can do about this and the way they treat people.and i would like to get it done as quick as possible not to sound pushy but they really are and if you try to explain anything they just turn on you in a second.i have been going to the same doctor and medical clinic since i got hurt and the same doctor for over 24 years and never went to the doctor till after i got hurt with my brain injury.and i really didn’t know how much metal was in my face till i went to a different clinic and got some xray’s taken of my head.so if i could talk to someone to explain this and my problem in person i would feel much better.and someone could help me and tell me what i can do to get the quality of life they say i have a right to have.i called the human rights of nova scotia and they told me to try here first and than call them back.so could someone please help me. thank you william macneil

    1. HEY BROTHER, I’m an injured worker as well, all kinds of messed up , all the abuse and neglect are geared at imposing psychological injurie, to the point you give up, or commit suicide. They don’t care as long as they get their gift cards, you heard right gift cards based of the disqualification of claims 15- 75 dollars tax free on our misery and blood. I have been fighting the bastards for 6 years now and I will expose them all. these abuses were identified in the 80’s -90,s I believe in “the Dorsey report”, and again in “1998 select committee meetings on the WCB” where do to the large number of directives and orders were given to the WCB to cut down on the abuses to injured workers, and correct some of the abusive discriminatory behaviour of officials and some medical officers at the wcb.
      Here’s my email address send me your phone number and ill call you (don’t want to publish my number on a website}.
      and misery loves company : wiredright@live.ca. perhaps I may offer some advice and ill bring you up to speed with what trees I’m shaking, and to ongoing legal action (same boat self represented) . regards Wayne

    2. William and Wayne (and anyone else struggling with Head injury), I am wondering if you have found a doctor to treat your concussion symptoms? Have you found a good lawyer to handle your case? If you are interested is sharing helpful info please let me know. Is there another site where people like you discuss these matters? Britt
