Thanks Mackey for the added info. Marcy No you can't. Workmen's Comp is about injuries at the workplace. What you can do is get a complete physical and a doctors report and file for Disability Pension. So sorry you are having so many problems. Take care Marcy * For persons in the U.S., Social Security Online has all the information necessary concerning requirements, procedures and downloadable forms for filing a Social Security Disability claim.
