Question - Full-thickness Supraspintus tears

by Muhammad G. Malik
(Toronto, Canada)

Dear Sir,

I had an accident where a car rear-ended me. I suffered pain in neck and shoulders. The X-ray of neck revealed DDD at level 4 and 5 of cervical spine and Ultrasound of shoulders has revealed Full-thickness supraspinatus tears of 2.6 cm in both the shoulders.

The insurer's doctors say that these injuries are not attributeable to motor-vehcile accident.

Before the accident I was physically fit and use to work 72 hours a week (12 hours daily for 6 days of the week) in a Warehouse.

Please comment on this.

Yours Sincerley,

Muhammad G.Malik
