Legal Question

Asked on: 7/20/13, 6:33 am

I sustained a back injury at work. went through all the required medical appt. which were made by workers comp Ins carrier, MRI,X-ray, Nero Surgeon etc. they decided about 8 months into the process to drop me based on an IME which said I was ok but not fully recovered and expected to make a full recovery in three months. which was not going to happen due to the impingement at L4/5 noted on the MRI and the medical records from the Nero Surgeon which failed to be seen by the attending IME thus I ended up before the Judge at Workmans comp court on a petition to remove me from the rolls I was asked by the judge if I agreed with the IME and I said no. he allowed me to gather all records and present them to him at another hearing. I did so and he agreed with me, they were wrong and he then asked if I would agree to settle with the Ins co. I said yes and he gave me time to decide if it would be a monies settlement or medical, my question is how do you determine which way to go, as you can see I've been my own lawyer for all of this. I am retired since the accident I am just stumped on the best way to consider what to do
