Anthony Feo suffered a herniated disk while on the job as an inspector, but he worked through the pain for more than six months after an MRI confirmed the injury. He got through his days with the help of daily spinal epidermal injections and exhaustive physical therapy sessions. Finally, an orthopedic surgeon recommended that Anthony undergo a disk fusion operation-for which Anthony had to miss five weeks of work for preparatory therapy sessions. However, right before the surgery, Anthony’s company’s insurance company asked him to see one of its doctors. The company doctor – without even examining Anthony – deemed Anthony’s original diagnosis inconclusive, cancelled his surgery, and released him to work. Anthony then approached Jennifer Kline, one of our workers’ compensation lawyers, for help. Jennifer battled for fair compensation while Anthony went ahead with the surgery.
“Jennifer was my salvation. She took immediate control of the situation. She stopped the company nurse from showing up at my doctor’s appointments. She collected my back wages, took care of my pile of medical bills, and got my workers’ compensation payments adjusted and delivered on schedule,” said Anthony. “My family and I are truly grateful for the help Jennifer and everyone at Katherman, Briggs & Greenberg provided throughout this entire fiasco.”
