A: There is a possibility that you can recover, given that your current limitation was incurred during the course of treatment for your underlying injury. My recommendation would be to contact an attorney with worker's comp experience, so that he can gather additional facts regarding the nature of your injuries, and guide you through the process. Considering that you have ongoing issues, I would recommend contacting an attorney sooner rather than later.
