Colorado Springs, CO asked in Health Care Law for Colorado

Q: I have suffered from back pain for many years, including being rushed to a hospital a couple of times for it, and it has

been ignored. I finally persisted with my primary doctor this year and she had an MRI done and it showed that I have DDD and bulging discs. Had previous hospitals gone through the steps to find out why I was in so much pain, I could've avoided the extent of the damage that has occurred by now. Would I even have a case?

A: A Colorado attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for two weeks. The most reliable way to answer your question would be to try to set up a free initial consult with Colorado law firms. Things could depend on your age, medical history, occupational history, how any disability you currently suffer would have been different with an earlier diagnosis, and other factors. Cases involving degenerative conditions are difficult in general, but that's something that would be best decided by a Colorado law firm after seeing your medical records and other details. Good luck
