    This can be a complicated issue. Kenny is right, your weekly compensation rate is a critical component to determining whether this offer is fair. I think you need to have an attorney review it, and most workers' compensation attorneys will offer a free initial meeting. You should have your medical records in hand, and meet with an experienced workers' compensation attorney.

    It has been my experience that there is usually a delay in ordering a referral to a neurosurgeon. The Workers' Compensation insurance company wants to see the notes of the doctor who read the MRI with you to confirm that the referral was appropriate. I am much more concerned by the insurance company's failure to accept your claim. If you were hurt on the job, they should be paying for your medical care and paying you for your time out of work. You plainly have a very serious case. In order to...

    I will echo the statements of the other lawyers. The employer may use your FMLA while you are out on comp. The employer does not have to do it, but they are within their right to do it. It does have the benefit of protecting your job.

    So long as your employer has actual notice of your injury, then there should not be a time problem. I would suggest that you give formal notice of your claim to your employer. You may want a lawyer to help you file a Form 50, which is the proper form.

    The answer depends on your son's age. If he is 18 or under he may be entitled to as much as half. If he is older but in school he may qualify. If he has any disabilities, regardless of his age, he may qualify. I suggest you speak to an experienced SC workers comp attorney.

    Medically, you can expect some reduction in arm pain, but continued neck pain and loss of range of motion of your neck. A 2 level fusion is a very serious procedure. You are eligible for lifetime care for the hardware and the spinal cord stimulator. Concerning workers comp benefits, the insurance company should provide 100% medical care, but be wary of company doctors and nurse case managers. You should get disability benefits while you are out of work and you are eligible for some...

    Hernia repair is usually successful, but unfortunately some people have your experience. The good news is your doctor relates your current problems to the original hernia. Ask your doctor what else he has to offer you to reduce the pain. If he doesn't have any options, then ask him to refer you to another doctor. Good luck!
