I injured my back in early 2005. I ruptured my L5/S1, L4/L5, and T1/C7 disks. I was off work for a couple of months then returned to work. I go to the doctor every month. I was sent for an IME several years ago and the doctor refused to give me a rating, saying he felt that they had not done enough to see if I had reached MMI. The only thing they ever did was send me to physical therapy. Until 2 months ago I had to pay for my own medication, even during a 3 year period with no insurance. Now they keep trying to settle with me and I`m not sure what to do. They will not change my diagnosis either, it is still listed as sprain and strain. What happens if I keep telling then no? I don`t know much about workers comp other than it is completely worthless. Any advice about my best course of action? Sorry for the the long post I just wanted to try to give all of the details. Thanks.
