Anyone know what the ballpark figure is to have a Spinal Fuison with Laminectomy performed? I have tried a search on the internet and have come up with varying numbers ranging from $70,000 to $115,000.
The reason I ask is because I have recently had a rather low-ball settlement offer thrown at me in order to keep my claim at a denied status. The amount I have been offered wouldn't cover any possible medical care--including future surgery.
I am 7 days away from hearing ( my WC claim began in Aug 2008) and desparate for money--only because my injury has made me so and affected every aspect of my life. Deep down I know I shouldn't settle out of court, but fear that the judge may uphold the denial, and consequently I walk away with nothing.
