Im 54 years old. I have awork injury to dominant hand arm and shoulder. Job found a position for me using only left hand but when QME report came they laid me off saying I dont fit the job position I was hired for. I made 13.25 hr 6 hrs a day when I left they only gave $300. Now I receive a workers comp stating I will only get $430 every 2 weeks. I have a lawer. QME says 14 percent permament disable and will need future medical care. No lifting pulling grasping pushing no driving over 6 hrs. Job sent settlement offer of only $11,000 . I called attorney and told him I refuse this offer. I go to hearing in 2 weeks. . Im constantly in pain everyday Dr refused surgery said he doesn't want to make injury worst. Do I tell attorney to ask for more money. Im thinking of my future who is going to hire me at my age when I cant use my dominant hand and be in pain all day. How much should I be asking for. I cant live off $11,000 rent alone is 1400
What should I do at this hearing.
