Do i have the right to be informed about my own medical condition???
#1
I was involved in a vehicle accident at work'my claim was accepted by my employer workers compensation carrier with no problems as far as i know.In the emergency room'i was told that i had a fractured c6'so after 3 months in a neck brace and 1 month of physical therapy so far.My attorney sent me to another doctor for a second opinion on my condition'there i recieved a copy of my medical records from the emergrncy room and i was shocked that my workers compensation insurance company nor did their doctor tell me that i had more injuries that i didnt know about.I had suffered a previous puncture to my right lung'bulging disks'compression fractures to my neck and upper back'osteoarthristis in my back'neck and knee along with a fractured sternum.So my question is do i have the right to be informed about my own health even though workers comp is responsible for the bills??? I was in shock to find out that i was worse off than i thought'i only found out about these other issues 4 months later....
