I am 55 yrs old, I was in an accident at work July 30th of 2008, I fell backward on concrete and my shoulder and neck hit a table behind me. My work didn't have an ambulance come and get and made me get up off the floor and go to the hospital in a car, so the question concerning that is what is the protocol in Missouri for that? What dictates whether or not you need an ambulance after a fall at work? Should it be after any fall where the neck, head, shoulder, and back is possibly injured?
They said my degenerative disc disease was the cause for me needing major back surgery. What % of people with degenerative disc disease end up needing surgery after a fall?
