I have been on WC since 2005. I have had a laminectomy and also a 3 level back fusion. At this point I am still in constant pain. The ins company is asking to settle but I have to come up with the figure. How do I calculate an acceptable figure? Do I base it off of income lost in the last 2 years based off of my ending salary vs. the WC income plus estimated lost wages for the next (how many?) years. Per my doctor, there is not another surgery or treatment that will improve me. I just don't know how to calculate a figure to offer them. Also, I have been told that PA worker's comp does not cover or pay for vocational rehab. Is this accurate? My doctor has recommended it on every report he has done since I will never be able to go back to the type of work I did before the injury.
