    More information is needed to properly answer your question. Did you hurt your neck or back in 2008? Is the surgery you had in October 2014 related to the 2008 injury or a new claim? You may have a new claim for occupational disease if your job caused your back condition which required surgery and your job exposed you to an increased risk of developing the back condition. The second element is typically difficult to prove when you have degenerative disk disease.

    There will be an offset between workers' compensation and social security disability benefits. Your employer does not have to pay your settlement in a lump sum, but there may be ways you can persuade them to do so and then you can keep more of your SSDI benefits. For more information you should contact an experienced workers' compensation attorney in person.

    You may have recourse,but I would need more information from you regarding your termination such as the explanation you were given for termination. You may have a retaliatory discharge claim, an age discrimination claim, or you may entitled to additional workers' compensation benefits depending on the extent to which you had recovered from your injuries, even though you were released to return to work full duty. You should contact an attorney to discuss your situation.
