a little bit of history, I am 25 yrs old I had shoulder surgery on a rotator cuff tear about a year ago. My employer has had me on light duty ever since, my shoulder is not rehabbing at all it is not getting any better I have limited range of motion, zero strength and alot of pain in daily life. My employer is pushing to settle my claim and they want me to come up with a number for a severance on top of claim settlement. I need some advice on both of these, the claim settlement is for medical only and i am told since I dont have documentation stating I will need another surgery right away my claim is not worth much money. Im not looking to get rich I just want to be able to provide for my family while I finish college I should be able to be done in less than a year. They are also offering uncontested unemployment while I am off. I am very confused on what to do or what a reasonable number would be! sorry for the length I have alot of information and this is only part of it.
