nerve damage

Posted by vicky [14415.9172] on October 13, 2010 at 21:27:02:

Dr. Stoll,

About six months ago, I fell and land on my knees, hands, wrist and forearms. My doctor gave me this diagnosis:

Wrist sprain-bilateral
Mild carpal tunnel syndrome-right
Mild pronator syndrome-bilateral,
Nerve injury bilateral -median nerve
Cubital tunnel syndrome-bilateral with mild on right and moderate on left
Contusion with intact skin surface of the both wrist.-bilateral


She got these answers by doing a EMG. Since this is comp related I have been denied nerve damaged. They approved only sprain wrist. I have pain and numbness after the accident but the my doctor and the comp. doctor states it is possibly pre existing, so there I get no help with this from compensation. I just don't believe this, because I do not know of any injury to my hands or arms. Once I had whiplash and it create pain and numbness but after the whiplash got better it went away. I feel cheated of treatment and must protest but not for sure how to explain to a group of people who want to denied me that I was hurt by this fall. Can you give me insight?

Vicky

Vicky,

You are being victimized by the old "shell game" the insurance companies play all the time, IMO. With this much evidence, they will eventually have to pay. They will make you go through the hoops, though to get it.

Your only hope is to get a good lawyer, experienced in this "shell game", and add a significant punitive amount to the suit so that they will think twice about playing it again with someone else! It should be far above the cost to you of the lawyer, etc.

Let us know how you do.

Walt

Hi Vicky,

Your condition was not pre-existing if it didn't bother you before. Even so, any pre-existing conditions that are aggravated by accidents/injuries should be covered by insurance.

I agree with Walt, you may have to become loud and annoying to get what you should have.

(Note: I had a car accident a couple of years ago and the ins. co. wanted to total my car, paying me next to nothing for it.... I complained a lot and then suddenly they found a way to fix it. So just start by complaining and saying that this accident has decreased your quality of life and has made your life a hardship, etc.)

Best wishes,
Jan
