My case is in NC. I had a slip and fall at work in Feb 08. I have played all the games with WC, going to all there doctor appoinments. I have an attorney as well. I was sent to a spine ctr (April 08)which sent me to theraphy for a couple of weeks(June 08). When back to the spine ctr.(Aug 08) and she know tells me she has read the x-ray and I have two herinated disc, this is why I have the pain I do! OK, if the doctor did her job back in April 08, I could be fixed or on a road to recovery. She is know ordering a MRI. Mean while, the insurance adjuster want to settle. I have turned thwm down once all ready. So we are going to mediation to reach a settlement. What to do? I have not reached my maximin impairment yet, they have done nothing to help me. Theraphy? That was more like a tourcher chamber! Know they are taking low numbers $40 - $50,000. This is my spine and I have to live with this for the rest of my life! This same law firm has settle rupturd disc/herinated for around $130 -$150,000. Why are they trying to low ball me? Any advice?
