Your settlement is directly based on the amount of impairments and future medical care and treatment assigned to you by any number of your doctors in each specialty. You need to review the final reports form your doctors to know what the value of your case is. If you have these repots, then any workers comp attorney can help with the value of your case.

Fair settlement? How much will it cost for a lifetime of medications and talk therapy to keep the PTSD in control? PLUS: What is the amount of Whole Person Impairment in the Qualified Medical Evaluator's report?

What is the mount of WPI in the Treating Physician's Maximum Medical Improvement report?

Did you receive Temporary Disability all the time you missed from work in recovery? If not, add that in plus a penalty.

Add on another $8,000 to resolve the possibility of New & Further Disability claims... and if you lost that job, add on another $6000 to resolve the Job Displacement Voucher.

It's WAY, WAY too complicated for an average worker to know if they have a 'fair' amount...

KNOW THIS: the insurance adjuster will offer you the very, very lowest amount she think a judge might approve. Listen to their offer and at least double it.
