    Question Denied Surgery

    Wife was recently denied surgery on her knee. Doctor says see needs it and w/c says no. We are lost on this and do not know what to do. Any help would be great.

    You have to prove "medical causation" to make work comp cover it. She needs the help of a lawyer at this point.
    The North Carolina Court of Appeals has held that "In contested Workers' Compensation cases today, access to competent legal counsel is a virtual necessity." Church v. Baxter Travenol Labs, Inc., and American Motorists Insurance Company, 104 N.C. App. 411, 416 (1991).
