    I don't practice WC law in your state. I have practiced WC law in Virginia for 35 years. You should definitely appeal the denial and talk to a WC lawyer in your state. You have not given much information but it appears the claim is being denied due to the diagnosis of arthritis, a pre-existing condition. However, if the tear you suffered was due to the accident and not the arthritis then you should have a good claim. You probably need a medical opinion from your doctor addressing this issue.

    Usually, being terminated for filing or having a WC claim is prohibited by a state statute. Then if you are fired because you are perceived as being disabled or having a disability you may have a claim under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). You need to speak to an employment lawyer in your state to see if you have a claim. This may be require a retainer fee unless liability is crystal clear.

    When you file a claim the defendant insurance company has the right to investigate your claim through discovery such as a deposition which is taking your statement in the presence of a court reporter under oath. You indicate you missed two depositions. As a result your case may be subject to dismissible. In this type of situation it may be too late to switch lawyers.

    Usually, only earned income from work is a problem. Loans and grants are not earned income and should not be a problem.

    As the others have said, working while on Social Security Disability can jeopardize your benefits and cause you to be charged with an overpayment of benefits. Especially if you start making over $1100 a month this will hit the Big Social Security computer sooner or later and trigger a review of your case.

    In addition to the excellent advice from my colleagues above I would suggest you contact your local Congressman or US Senator. They may have a SS troubleshooter on staff who can assist you with no expenses for you.

    It takes two sides to settle a case. State Farm has put a value on your claim. This may be the most they are willing to offer. Usually, the elements that are important in a Virginia are your compensation rate, your time being out of work due to the injury, your future medical expenses, and the permanent damage to any extremity. The insurance company normally offers a settlement when it is in their best interests. This means can they pay less in a settlement than they can pay you over time. It...
