I was setting up a show and I had three eight-foot tables fall across the back of my neck. After the incident, I’m one of these guys that, do you know what? You take a couple of aspirin, suck it up, and keep going. Well, my symptoms got worse. I almost couldn’t use my left leg and the numbness and tingling in my hands started getting worse.
Two days after the accident, I went to the emergency room, and I was there for about four hours. And they had a CAT scan and an MRI done, and next thing you know, I’ve got four doctors and a surgeon standing in front of me. Well, next thing you know, they told me that I’d blown out a disc between 4 and 5, I had a ruptured 6, and that I needed immediate surgery. The neurosurgeon told me to go up to a hospital just south of Denver, and I went. When they come back out, they said, “Well, Work Comp hasn’t approved the surgery yet and we have a patient co-pay that if you would like to go ahead and pay, we can get you admitted.” She wrote down a figure on a piece of paper and handed it to me. $26,000.
I contacted McDivitt Law Firm, told them what happened. They told me, “If your symptoms get worse, go. It will work out in the wash as far as everybody being paid. Don’t worry about it.” A week later I couldn’t move my left leg. I went to the hospital emergency room. I was admitted and had the surgery within two days. I’ve lost the feeling in six fingers, the thumb, middle, and forefinger of each hand, and I have a problem controlling the use of my left leg and I have to walk with a cane now. I could not have gotten an eighth of what I got if I had not had McDivitt Law Firm. You can’t go wrong by using these people. They tell you up front what their fee is. I didn’t have to pay them a dime out of my pocket for them to represent me. I owe these guys more than what they asked for. I really do.
