I was injured on a peuce of heavy Construction Equipment. Now ive got a 13mm portrusion and shatterd peices of the disc pushing on nereve causing serious sciatica bilateraly , its def. Gotten worse over time. Ive tried PT,INJECTIONS, AND MEDS, STILL NO RELEIF..three opinions from surgeons saying i could benefit from a microdiskectomy. Suffering from major depression issues and mood swings.Eapeciall when work comp is draggn there feet!! I have a lawyer..just curious to knownif u guys would agree with what hes saying. So hes said to me that 50k would be an offer i shud consider... but considering what ive already gotten for lost wages i think its rather low? I would have acheived so many raises within this time is that considered when settli g? Im pretty banged up and wouldnt feel comfortable returning to that line of work what are my chances of recertification.
