I was wondering can my attorney ask to settle my work comp case even before the insurance company offers. I have a rare injury and there is only one person that does the surgery for comp in pittsburgh. Now if I don't have the surgery will that make my case more valuable in the end. The reason why I want to settle is because my adjuster is a complete and total moron and the rudest person that I have ever meant. I just want to move on with my life.
