The California Glossary says, "If the injury or illness was caused by
repeated exposures (a cumulative injury), the date of injury is the
date you knew or should have known the injury was caused by work."
I've worked as a truck driver for 20 years with aching knees.
I only found out in 2010 that I had Severe Osteoarthritis when I was xrayed for something else.
I'm scheduled for a Total Knee Replacement in Janurary 2012.
Though I'm only 52, 2 surgeons recommended 2 TKR's.
What is my DOI?
