Hi ,i'm in GA . here goes my story. i had surgery on my lower back (fusion l4,5 s1)
got through all that but still have pain.the dr. where i aws going was way out of town so he tells me i'm about as good as i'm going to get &
that because of the pain of driving so long to get to him(100 mi.) that he wants me to come back to where i live to their place here to have functional cap. test.
Well i get here & this dr. wants me to do more phy. therapy.be fore the test
In the mean time the dr. over there sends workers comp a paper saying he has released me with a 13 percent dis. rating.(what??????)
RELEASED but I still hurt & i'm still under a dr. care.....i don't understand.I can't bend over,pick up stuff, even take care of my wife like I should.
workers comp sent me a offer 30K (WHAT???) &
my lawyer said oh about 60K would be the most
I told him no & he said it is risky no to settle now but I know that I can't hold down a job & want to get ss . what can I do....someone please help
