Workmans Comp in GA should I settle (Currently 0 replies)
Posted At 15:05:07 03/08/2001
I had an OTJ injury and subsequent surgery. I do not have a lawyer. This happened in 1997. I have been receiving weekly checks of 2/3 of my original check. WC now wants to settle with me. My surgery was to place 2 titanium rods in my back to stabalize my spine. I also have SI joint damage and have received injections by an anthesthesiologist. I could face future surgery but right now my docs aren't sure. I have been told not to bend twist or lift. I did try to go back to work last year but couldn't hack it. I was given a job that was 55 miles from where my original job was. I resigned last year. So here I am still disabled. What should I do. They offered me 25,000 but I said no way. I can't sit for long periods of time so a full time job is out of the question. I need answers soon. What is an injury like this worth. My past medical bills are around 75,000. Thanks for all your help. Please email me if possible.

I to got hurt at work almost 5 yrs ago. I had 2 back operations ( spinal fusion with rods, cages and screws)I am left with iliac joint chronic pain and depression. Im on pain pills to get by and have a spinal internal tens unit implant. I also am in a negotiation for a settlement. Am total and permanent disabled and only 43. Aas far as the w/c is concerned it isnt worth much. Just enough so you can pay for the pills for the next 20 yrs and hope no further complications that i will have to pay in the future. It really stinks.Living in florida with no rights. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any info useful. will be accepting emails till april 3 01 then i have to decide
