" Thank you for the very dignified and accurate way you dealt with WorkSafeBC on my behalf.

 

On reviewing my file, it is very obvious that I, as a severely injured worker, did not have the ability to deal with WorkSafeBC. The case worker did not have any compassion to what I had gone through on the day of injury, hostpial stay and long-term healing, nor was of any assistance forthcoming. In fact, my WorkSafeBC file was on the way to "no" where. Every time it seemed something good was about to happen, the "no" adjective was forthcoming, and every request denied.

 

Your depth of knowledge with WorkSafeBC, and advice to me, resulted in the correct action being taken at each step of the process, ie. appeals etc. With the excellent actions taken, my file was concluded in a 100% total satisfied way. Sir, I recommend you and your staff to anyone who has had a WorkSafeBC program injury.

 

Thank you to you and all your staff for a just reward you attained for me. Well done. I am sincerely satisfied."

- Wayne F. Popp
