JH underwent an L5-S1 laminectomy and discectomy related to an injury that he suffered on the job. Two weeks later, on his way to a post-surgery physical therapy appointment, JH was involved in a car accident.
Because of this, JH underwent a second L5-S1 laminectomy and discectomy to repair the damage caused by the auto accident. Unfortunately for JH the procedure did not hold, and JH was forced to have a L5-S1 decompression and fusion.
All available insurance limits from the at-fault party and also from JH’s under-insured motorist policy were recovered for a total of $171,992.
