My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: California
I was injured in February of 2011 and just received a QME Findings Summary Form. The QME determined I have a 6% permanent whole person impairment due to a shoulder injury sustained at work. I never went on disability because I could not afford to. What do I do next? Am I entitled to some kind of settlement? The QME also says I should be given the opportunity for surgery if I wish. I do not have legal representation at this time and would prefer NOT to involve an attorney. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
