Is it a good idea for my husbands employers Workers Comp Representative to go on a doctors visit with us????????????????
My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: Oklahoma!
My husband was injured at work in June 08. He has been following all of his doctors recommendations. He injured both of his knees falling off of a truck. he has never had any trouble with his knees nor accidents of injuries of his knees.
His doctor has diagnosed him with Chondromalacia. Stage 3. Doctor completed a arthroscopy of his left knee. Stated that he needs total knee replacement on both knees but is too young. Said that he will go ahead and do a second arthroscopy of his left knee and will not even touch his right knee until he sees how his left turns out. Says he will never heal from this. Will just be about pain management.
Doctor said that he is not going to be able to return to work at the same job. He will require a sedentary job. He will need job training for this. Since all he has ever done is manual labor.
Insurance Claim Rep wants to go to our next doctors appointment. Why????
