Plaintiff went to the emergency room later that morning and began treating with a physical therapist less than a week later. Further, he claimed he was unable to work as a school district custodian for approximately two months after the collision. Dr. Robert Schultz opined there was a 30% chance plaintiff would need surgery in the future to repair a herniated disc. Defendant did not obtain an independent medical examination.
