Lawsuit accuses doctor of bias in denying injury claim

Posted by: DO/Tuesday, January 30, 2018/Categories: In The News

Cederberg performed two examinations on Thompson in 2012 after she injured her neck at JC Penny in Brookings, where she worked as a manager in the jewelry department. Thompson’s head struck a countertop, causing the neck injury, according to her lawsuit.

National Union initially began paying Thompson under worker compensation insurance. But the company denied payments after Cederberg concluded that Thompson’s neck pain was from degenerative disk disease that existed before the at-work injury.

Thompson subsequently went through two surgeries to have the vertebrae in her neck fused.

Thompson filed a petition with the Department of Labor, and on Feb. 23, 2017, the department entered a decision determining that Thompson was entitled to past and future medical expenses as well as permanent and total disability benefits.
