    Answered . I agree with the prior posters that you should obtain a second opinion. There may be facts which may have made your lawyer come to that conclusion that we have not been privy to on this forum. It may just be that your lawyer told you that the carrier won't pay anything to settle the case before going all the way to trial. A second opinion may help in clarifying your lawyer's conclusion.

The part of your query that is slightly atypical is for them to take a "no-pay" position with surgery. What is the extenuating circumstance; perhaps pre-existing? Regardless, I can understand a nominal or token offer. Good luck.
