I injured my back last April, and told my manager a week later when it started hurting. She said that because I didn't report it immediately, there was nothing she could do. Six months later, it had gotten worse, and another manager found out and filled out workers comp paperwork. I went to a doctor, and after physical therapy and light work didn't help, they did an MRI. Apparently it's a "huge" herniated disc (8mm), and I'm going to see a specialist tomorrow because I may need surgery. My question is whether there is anything I can do about the fact that they waited so long, during which time my back probably worsened.
