New Here: TKR 6 months
#1
Background: I am in Idaho. I am a teacher and fell while at work in Dec 2017. I injured my right knee which incurred a surgery in March 2018 for several tears in the miniscus. At that time they also shaved the knee bones due to fragments, etc. Unfortunately, the surgery did not work and my knee ended up worse. Lots of technical medical stuff but even the IME Workers Comp agreed a TKR was needed as soon as possible. TKR was done in September 2018. I was off work for 7 weeks and then returned to work with restrictions. I’ve been doing PT 3x a week since surgery.

Questions:

1. Workers comp has treated me fairly (albeit slow) thus far. But do you think I should get an attorney to make sure future needs and settlement are advocated for?

2. Since I’ve never been through this before, does the prior surgery factor into any type of compensation in the end?

3. What do I need to know since I know nothing!!!

Thank you!
-Jenny
