Gonna cut to the chase and try and make this short, I was injured on the job by a steel beam that I was lifting. I injured my L5/S1 and had surgery. Now that surgery has failed and left me with failed disc surgery syndrome and I have ssdi in place I asked comp if we could just settle so I could move on with my life and try to do something with my life. I'm 43 and have a 13% whole body impairment rating and neurosurgeon will not give me an ok to work and says I'm not fit to, it's going on 3 years and wanna end this,anyway insurname company offered me 28k and they have already given me 21k for my surgery should I take the 28k or get a lawyer since I still have to support my 4 kids? Please help!
