"Home Depot is killing my husband!"

We get mail. (Excerpted from the comments):
Home Depot is killing my husband! Their policy is "Do whatever it takes to get the job done" and when you're hurt and can't lift more than 10# they say "The customer doesn't want to hear that you can't lift that." When you file a workers comp claim, they file it as an incident report with no medical attention required so that it gets filed with the insurance carrier and no claim is ever started. My husband was lifting a 250# bronze gazebo with a wimppy lot attendant and the kid dropped his end, the weight on my husband's end ruptures 3 neck vertabra and Home Depot is lying about the incident so that he can't get workers comp. I would like to right this injustice.
