My husband was injured @ work & had surgery on his neck to repair ruptured disk. The doc did not repair the herniated disks. We recently contacted an attorney & he had been very helpful. He said that a wc settlement case could take a while. He expained the formula used to figure out how much the ins co would say the case is worth, but I didn't quite understand. Can anyone answer my questions...how long does a case like this usually take & how much $ can we expect?
