Legal Question

Asked on: 7/14/13, 11:50 am

I injured my lumbar back at work 1-2-12. I was on workman's comp and subsequently had a microdiskectomy on 5-15-12. I returned to work 3 months after the surgery. I began having the same pain again and have been on workman's comp since 2-4-13. I have had steroid, and facet joint injections that have not worked. I just had a discogram that shows it is degenerative and not amenable to a spinal fusion. The workman's comp physician states it is degenerative due to work. I deliver bread for a living and do a lot of bending and lifting. I will be going back to the doctor to assess what is next. I am worried that I will be sent back to work since there is no other course of action, I am told that I have to live with the pain. My question is what is my recourse? Do I have to return to work, should I see an attorney? Thank you, Brian
