Debra, Expert

I know your question is important to you and I will be giving it the time and attention it deserves.

Sometimes responses and replies take time, so I ask you to be courteous and patient to allow me the time to type answers to you and also to others. At times I may even have to do some research.

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

What reasons are you being provided?


Customer
My total charges will be 5.00?
Customer
They said this would only cost 5? Can you confirm this

Debra, Expert

I cannot confirm anything because the lawyers do not work for the site. Could you please speak to Customer service.

Hi there, I am just following up on this question. I am unable to provide a detailed answer without more information.

Debra, Expert

Without the information requested, I can only give a general answer based on the information I have.

Here is the answer to your query. Please do not hesitate to ask any follow up questions related to this response and know that I will respond as soon as I can.

It looks like you're having trouble with WSIB. Your best next step would be to contact the office of the workers advisor. They will help you with any appeal and will do this for free.

Here is a link to the contact information that you will need:

Does that help as a starting point?
