You may have already answered this question, but I can not remember.

As you know, I am trying to make lemonaid out of lemons. When it comes to my injury.

The question is this. Lets say that I need a surgery on my spine. The level above the one that has been fused. With no explaination as to how the new injury occured. Meaning, I am not working. Does that fall under WC????? How would that be handled???

I am assuming, that if I am working for another company and the above is needed. That the new companies WC coverage should handle it. Is that correct???

Thank you.
8-05, Micro laminectomy/disectomy. 10-05 lumbar fusion L5-S1. 2-07 exploritory surgery. 12-07 medical implant, Spinal Cord Stimulator. now receiving SSDI. After going back to school, I received my degree as a mechanical engineer. What can I say, it was the only way I had to beat the system.

with no connection to either the prior injury or the new employment comp won't cover it.
you at least need a medical opinion that attributes the new condition to the WC fusion as a continuation injury or a compensible consequence.
in that case the prior claim would cover it.
only a new work injury from working with a new employer would require a new claim.

have you talked to your atty about a second medical opinion?

hypothetically it would probably have to be litigated.
an atty would know who to get favorable medical opinion from.
