I have had 3 seperate injuries to my lower back while on active duty with the Air Force. I am currently undergoing a Medical eval Board that will more then likely retire me from the military. When they determine my disability % ongoing pain is not allowed to be factored into their equation. Due to my pain not being taken into account, and im looking at the possibility of being in pain for the rest of my life, I wonder if the military can be sue'd for that pain and suffering. 1st injury, tore most of the muscle tendons in my lower back while pushing an engine lift kit for an aircraft. 2nd injury, rear-ended in a car accident on base. 3rd injury hopped down from ontop a desk to the floor. resulting overall injury, 1 hernated disc, 3 bulging discs, straightening spine.
