Its been a while since Ive been here so Just a brief history,,( I'm in IOWA)
I tore out my KNEE in 2001(complete tear acl and cartilage) i had 3 surgery's , ACL repair, LATERAL release and some cartilage work( docs notes spell out that I will need a future knee replacement).. over the last 6 years Ive been in the doc office for shots in the knee for pain and swelling, Its been almost a years and I went back to the doc for another shot.. And I get a call from WC 2 weeks later..
Over the last 3 years WC calls me with a small settlement offer and I always deny it say not interested because what they offer will not even cover my shots for the next 10 years let alone the rest of my life lol..
well I got a call a couple days ago with the same small offer and I said sorry not interested
He says that the longer I wait the harder it will be to prove the knee pain is work related and that it could be considered ageing process and lifestyle that is leading to my knee pain so my question is can the deny my surgery's and pay for the meds and shots the longer that time goes by?.. Like I said in my doc notes it does state I will need a future knee replacement..
one last thing maybe its nothing but I haven't been to the doc for about a year and I noticed at the end of my paper work it shows a past due bill of 3000.00 ..
anyway thanx for any help..
