Wondering about workers comp. long story short- my friend has degenerated disc. He works a very physically demanding job. 12-15 hour shifts 4 days straight. On feet the whole time. Heavy lifting etc. He recently hurt his back very bad & has MRI scheduled. It didn’t happen at work but it is caused by the wear & tear from his job. Is this workers comp related or no? He’s never dealt with anything like this & neither have I. He is being monitored by an Ortho.
