All 3 shoulder surgeries failed. Upon the 3rd surgery he claimed there was no tear. But the mri clearly showed a 3 cm tear. After being sent to physical therapy the tear increased to 4cm completely severed. He then tried surgery, found to be irreparable. The next day after the failed surgery is was sent back to work in pain with no work restrictions. His explanation was ( that's how comp works). Luckily I had a good attorney that got me a shoulder replacement in omaha.
