I have worked at Toyota Motor Mfg in Georgetown for 11 years. I was diagnosed recently as having Kienbock's disease in my left wrist. I was on restricted duty for almost 5 months, and was sent home last week. I will now be getting WC checks in the mail every 2 weeks. At my last visit to the hand specialist, I was told to consider whether I wanted to have surgery or not. The surgery does not correct the problem, it just reduces pain. Without surgery, I can never work on the line again. With surgery, I could probably go back on line, but would no doubt continue to injure myself.
I just need some help in deciding what to do. Any advice on attorneys to talk to? What can I expect to go through from here on out?
Thanks for any help.
