The adjuster asked if I had any others back injuries before and I said I did have back pain before but it was a long time ago. She asked if it was beyond ten years ago, and I absentmindedly said yes but it was actually more like three years ago... should I call her back and correct the statement?
You should get legal advice from a local experienced workers’ compensation lawyer before you do anything else. Period. And remember, the adjuster is not on your side. She is not looking for a reason to cover your claim. She is looking for a reason NOT to pay your claim. Talk to a lawyer.
