Hi I am in California working for medical center .I lifted a patient and hurt my lower back . the insurance is treating me and sending me to physical therapy . I had prior injury to the same area 5 years ago but got better and had no pain at the time of this injury . I was put on temporary restrictions and was sent back to work .
I want to keep those modification permanent and life time medical for that injury . do I need to hire an attorney or they will give it to me . .I have bad disc rupture and severe deg disc dz on MRI .I still have severe low back and left leg pain from the injury.Please advise thanks
