COMPLWYR ........YOUR DA MAAAAN... OR WOMAAAAN But either way THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ALL THE INFO YOU SENT. I'm totally up to speed now on all this whirlwind WC process. I start rehab on 2/18/2012 and have a strong feeling I will be doing it for life. So I take it rehab will be in my settlement as part of the Lifetime Medical treatment my lawyer said I WILL receive. I've seen on here some monetary amounts including Lifetime medical on here be as much as $350k+ due to my injury and knowing Ill never be 100% Does this money number seem realistic or could I receive more or probably less? Just curious cause I'm very worried about my future, My Lawyer says my company will more than likely ask for a Voluntary Resignation because I most likely won't be able to do my same job. My position is one of the highest paid there. And I'm not going to do something else for less than I was qualified to do before the injury. My Lawyer says that the WC INS is responsible for retraining me via vocational rehab or sending me to school to learn a new trade or career. I would rather just take my settlement if it is what Im told it will most likely be and work for myself. Be my own boss. I can think of lotsa things I can do to be self employed.But during the rehab process being I'm supposedly done with surgeries,what should I expect the next step in my situation during or after this rehab?
