Degenerative Disc Disease and the Injured Worker

How many injured workers get this response from the workers' compensation insurance carrier: "You have degenerative disc disease (DDD) in your spine and we are not responsible for it." Claims Adjusters and Nurse Case Managers follow a certain protocol when dealing with degenerative disc disease and other types of arthritis, DENY DENY DENY. The real fact is that degenerative disc disease is something that occurs overtime or advances with strenuous activity as we get older. 90% of the population has some form of DDD but this condition is not always painful. If you get injured on the job and never had back pain before, then chances are you aggravated that underlying DDD. If you get injured on the job and did have issues with back pain but the job injury made it much worse, then chances are you aggravated the underlying DDD. If you would like a more detailed explanation, please call Jason Krasno. Jason has litigated hundreds of these cases and consulted with some of the leading spine surgeons and physiatrists in Pennsylvania.
