    Answered . In many jurisdictions whether the insurance company will offer a settlement for your back may depend on whether the work comp doctor concludes that you have any permanent partial disability. It is importanto understand that the best work comp attorneys will sit down with you, at no cost and with no obligation, and flesh out the details of your situation and how they apply in your situation. In most jurisdictions, obtaining a medical opinion that is provided by a doctor who is well versed in both medical and legal understanding will be a wise consideration but that is a decision to make when you are well advised and informed by a local attorney experienced in work comp claims.

    Answered . Not sure of your question, however, please do not assume that the insurance carrier will treat you fairly. Quite the contrarty, the way to try to have a carier treat you "fairly" is be using a local and qualified personal injury/worker's compensation attorney(s). The delay in retaining one is only harming a potential claim. Good luck.
