About a month ago I had a work related injury (broken thumb) My question is if im entitled to a settlement. Workmans comp pays my medical bills and gives me 70% of what I used to make in a week. But I've been told that I can get a settlement because the thumb is the most important finger of the hand, and it may never be fully functional. is that right? If so is it too late to take action. I'm still going to therapy and the therapist told me that I may need another surgery because the tendons have growned attached to the scarring.I meant an additional compensation not a settlement.
