I don't know where to begin, but I feel like my case has some serious flaws, from my injury, surgery, work comp doctor, my attorney, and my current doctor. I'm a newbie to this site so here's my first of many more questions to come....
Why do I feel like everyone is against me?? I can answer that one myself..... because they are all shady with any answers to my questions and I literally feel like my own attorney thinks my case is peanuts and they have bigger fish to fry, so I need to be gone.
The only settlement offer I have been quoted is so low its embarrassing to repeat! Also I have not been "so called fixed" and work comp is not offering to leave any future medical open. WHAT THE????
Meanwhile I have had a herniated disc injury to my lower back while on the job, with injections, physical therapy, and a surgery for disc discectomy/laminectomy. Which by the way was a failure and I have been told by my second opinion doctor that I am worse off now than before the surgery and he has suggested a spinal fusion with hardware and then another surgery later on for removal of hardware.
Too bad he retired and the new doctor that took his place has reviewed the previous doctors file on me and has instructed me to make a complete life style change in 2 months and only then will he proceed with my needed surgery!!! I was at a loss for words when he told me that. Ive already had a life changing event that will haunt me to my death. I am young, about 20+ years before I can retire. WHAT DO I DO ABOUT THIS ISSUE????? ANY HELP, ADVICE, OR OPINIONS WOULD BE GREATY APRECIATED!! THANK YOU!!
