    You may have a wrongful termination claim and an ADA(Americans with Disabilities Act) claim in addition to your workers' compensation claim. I would start with an experienced work comp lawyer. This not a DYI area of the law. You will leave money on the table if you don't consult a lawyer to at least take a quick look at the settlement offer.

    Sounds like your accident caused an injury to your spine. A surgery may leave you with restrictions which could make it difficult for you to continue in your present job. Your surgeon will need to offer opinions to support your case. If you were hurt on the job in Idaho it is always best to consult with an experienced Idaho workers' compensation lawyer early so you can know what benefits you are entitled to under the facts of the case. (Most experienced Idaho workers' compensation lawyers will answer your questions for free) The Idaho lawyer will also know your surgeon and be able to tell you if your surgeon will testify. Some local spinal surgeons will not testify in a work comp case. Be careful who does your surgery.
