All employees deserve to feel protected and safe at their workplace. Unfortunately this isn’t always the case. Accidents sometimes happen. However, accidents can also be caused by the negligence of an employer. Our personal injury attorneys have helped countless of victims recover after an accident. Scott Ricker’s case was one of many handled by the professional team at Mann, Wyatt & Tanksley.
While on the job at a construction site in Hutchinson, Scott was the victim of a terrible accident. His tailbone was struck by a large rock, and he immediately felt an intense burning in his back. The pain even shot to the tips of his fingers. Even though he was in serious pain, Scott’s employer took no action for medical help.
“When they finally sent me to the hospital, the doctor they chose didn’t even take X-rays,” explains Scott. “It wasn’t until I got a second opinion that they discovered a herniated disc in my back. I was unable to work, or pay hospital bills. I was also getting no help from the insurance companies. ”
Scott was put into contact with personal injury attorney Mitch Rice by the doctor who discovered his herniated disc. There was a specific procedure Scott needed for his recovery. However, the insurance companies were trying to get him a less effective surgery. Things changed immediately as soon as Mitch took over the case.
“It wasn’t about money. It was about getting Scott healed and back to work, so he could reclaim his life,” says Mitch.
Mitch made sure the hospital bills were taken care of. He also found an experienced doctor who could perform the exact surgery that Scott needed. After his treatment, Scott was eventually able to return to work. Not only that, his surgery had made him an inch taller!
“It’s a really scary feeling when you’re hurt. It’s the worst time of your life,” says Scott, “Mitch was always there to answer questions and help me through the entire process.”
