workers comp question

Hi, I had acdf with fusion on c5-c6

last May and it looks like the Dr. is

going to finally declare me MMI next

month. He's already told me that I

have an automatic 25% impairment

rating in my neck and that I have a

25% chance of having another

surgery on the disc above or beneath

in the next 10 years. He made it

VERY CLEAR that I shouldn't close

future medical for anything less than

20 grand since this is what another

fusion would cost at a minimum.

When I was off work my weekly

check was around 360.00. Does

anyone have a clue what I can

expect as a settlement offer? Do you

think they'll even come close to

offering that much to close future

medical? I don't currently have an

attorney and honestly haven't

needed one up to this point... Would

it be wise to get one just for the

closing of this case? Thanks in

advance for any advice!
