    FCEs are a favorite way for a workers' comp claimant to be accused of "symptom magnification" and/or giving "sub-maximal efforts." Then, the doctor might decide you're a liar and release you to regular duty, so that the insurance company can cut off your indemnity and medical benefits. Before you go (which you do have to do on an accepted case), I would talk to a local attorney (i.e., not one of the guys who answer Avvo questions all the time from other states to get their scores up) to...

But again, ask your attorney what's going on and to file a hearing request and/or schedule the conference call.

    Adjusters close files that don't seem active all the time. However, her rights under the GA Workers' Compensation Act are not closed (unless she signs an approved stipulation saying as much).

    Sounds like you need more medical care (to include surgery, perhaps). I wouldn't settle right now. The fact that the adjuster is pushing you to settle now is further indication that you likely shouldn't.
