I have been involved in this for going on 3 years. I do not know what to do. My attorney is advising me to take settlement even though my health is continuing to deteriate. He says this is way system is. I have lost everything I owned including the house I bought at 20, I am now 28. What should I do it is endless fighting between insurance and doctors. The workers comp system is setup to protect employer from the mistakes they made. The insurance company holds all the power in determining care. I have all my documents in order and if you want to hear my long ordeal I am willing to share. Without getting into this very long story I have a few simple questions: Should I take the settlement and use this to blast the parties involved on social media and in the local news and paper? Will I then have to ability to recieve the care I need? My attorney says theres nothing else he can do. I know the system will not get me my home back or recover anything that I have lost or my quality of life. What should I do?
I have 2 herniated discs, spinal stenosis, nerve root damage and compression with left leg radiculopathy. I can walk(hobble more like) with a cane for only very short periods at time less than hour
