Liberty Mutual TV advertising campaign

Posted by Thomas Brown | Nov 18, 2020 | 0 Comments

Liberty Mutual has a TV advertising campaign that has been ongoing for about 6 months. Its bottom line statement that is displayed on my TV screen is “you only have to pay for what you want.” This is a very misleading message.

What is Spondylolysis

Posted by Thomas Brown | Oct 26, 2020 | 0 Comments

When this condition is present to a person who was recently a victim of an injury (whether job injury or an automobile accident injury), the doctor's knowledge of advanced imaging is of crucial importance. However if nerve root injury is also suspected, MRI is the imaging testing of choice.

Stop Complaining and Start Participating

“Stop complaining and start participating”, said Associate Justice to the Supreme Court of the United States, Stephen Breyer, in a speech he gave on The Constitution in September of 2019. The speech was given to young people worried about democracy’s position in the United State of America and the nation’s increasingly politicism/polarization.

Work Injuries and Vocational Rehabilitation

Posted by Thomas Brown | Oct 08, 2020 | 0 Comments

I have used this column to advocate for and to agree with all initiatives that involve vocational rehabilitation. It is so easy to agree with and get behind all efforts to re-train people to enter the job market. My goodness, who would be against such an effort? I have numerous clients in my workers’ compensation practice who are disabled due to a severe job injury (which also finds the employers who argues they cannot accommodate my client’s disabilities/limitations). Employers disregard disabled employees with no regard to seniority with the company of injury or the likelihood that the employee may not be able to find appropriate alternative employment. They just write off the disabled.

Fumbling the Ball on Re-training

Posted by Thomas Brown | Oct 06, 2020 | 0 Comments

It really bugs me when someone is given a whole lot but blows it completely! Take for instance the City of Atlanta. The City was awarded 4 million dollars to re-train youth, the disabled and just about anybody else. This money came from the Federal Government.

What is the Panel of Doctors?

The most important question that I try to stress in every one of these segments is where is the panel of doctors posted? This is the most important question at the beginning of your case.

Should I get ACDF or Cervical Disc Replacement Surgery?

Posted by Thomas Brown | Sep 23, 2020 | 0 Comments

During the course of our representation of many injured workers, we come across questions like this one, what type of cervical surgery will be helping one to recover in an opportune time and be able to go back to work in a relatively short time? Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) is a surgery to remove a herniated or degenerative disc in the neck. Cervical disk replacement surgery involves removing a diseased cervical disk and replacing it with an artificial disk. Before this procedure was available, the affected disk was removed and the vertebrae above and below were fused together to prevent motion.

Do you have a legal right to settle your workers’ compensation case?

Posted by Thomas Brown | Aug 10, 2020 | 0 Comments

Do you have a legal right to settle your workers’ compensation case? No, but many insurers will push you into a corner, then say they want to discuss settlement with you. If you are ready to settle, you need to sit down with your lawyer (me) and devise a strategy. Unrepresented workers tend to leave money on the table when they negotiate with the claims adjuster

Why does Resurgens Orthopedics state on their referral form “Schedule MRI AT THE REQUEST OF THE PROVIDER?”

Posted by Thomas Brown | Aug 07, 2020 | 0 Comments

How frustrating. This generic referral then allows the insurance company to re-assert control of your medical treatment in your workers’ compensation claim. This is done across the board by all Resurgens doctors. It is done for that very purpose. The key concept in all job injury claims is “who controls your medical treatment?”
