    maybe.
    whether the fall was caused by a work injury or not will depend on medical evidence; neither you or the employer gets to decide.

    The doctor who is treating your workers compensation injury will have to determine if the nerve caused the fall and if this injury is causally related to your comp injury. I would get this determination as soon as possible and if you have an attorney inform the attorney tomorrow. Also, just to cover your ass file a workers compensation injury form along with the form they want you to file, with who would be responsible for your care and needs of your new injury be determined later.

    You are seeing a Chiropractor for your knee injury... where is the distinct possibility of your need of surgery...
    You need a "doctor", Ortho, not a chiro...
    they puled some out and are going to have sombody look at it to see what it is
    That is a biopsy of the ligigment... generally takes about two days for results from the lab.

    IF your -knee was not accepted in the org claim...you will have to get the ER/IC to accept as a compensable consequence, or beneftis are not going to be paid... namely, medical care. TKO or otherwise, they will deny.

    As I stated above. Contact your treating doctor, the one who stated your back and knee was injury related and is a workers compensation case, then notify your attorney, and wait for the test result while your attorney and your treating doctor get together to determine weather or not you have a case. Personally, if what was found was something that needed to be roved asao I'd skip comp ,and go right to the proper treating doctors deal with this type of disease (cancer and or tumor).
