|Author||Subject: Workmans Comp in GA should I settle|

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.
