My husband ruptured the disk between L5-S1 at work. He recently had surgery and has more pain in his leg now then he had before the surgery. The doc says that it's probably just from moving everything around and told him to take a Medrol dose pak (hopefully it will work). His workers comp insurance has been wonderful. They promptly return our calls, answer any questions, pay for all medical expenses including his meds, etc.
The more horror stories I read the more afraid I get. I don't want to wait until it's too late to get an attorney, but I also don't want the insurance company to stop being cooperative. What are the odds of w/c insurance actually treating someone fairly?
