Broken fib/tib with pre-existing condition
This is my first post and I'm not sure if anyone has advice. My husband fell at work on a wet floor and broke his leg in two places, the standard fib/tib break, in mid January this year. The claim is filed in Missouri. He was diagnosed 25 years ago with CIDP, a rare nerve condition that has many different symptoms for different people but usually is some form of tingling/numbness of legs, feet, and hands. This condition has been well under control for 20+ years and had absolutely nothing to do with his accident. Now, with the physical stress of using crutches and having to put all of his weight on only one leg for 6 or more weeks, his CIDP might be flaring up. The main symptoms are tingling and numbness in his "good" leg/foot due to over-use of that leg, and in both hands due to having to grasp the crutches. He still is not back to work yet and will not be released for at least another 3 weeks. He is receiving proper WC weekly checks and I'm assuming they are paying all of the medical bills, but I'm worried about how WC handles a flare-up of a pre-existing condition in a case like this. We just retained an attorney but have not discussed the CIDP with him yet. Have any of you dealt with something like this? Thank you.
