I recently sent an e mail to my attorney accepting to settle my workers com case as he requested and I just read an e mail back from him saying the following.Please keep in mind once you instruct me to settle and I accept the settlement the courts in Florida treat this as a binding agreement at the time of my acceptance, regardless of whether the Judge has approved the settlement and regardless of whether you have signed any settlement documents. what does this means. please help me.I had been under compensation for almost 8 months, I had 2 surgerys both for hernias one umbilical and another bilateral inguinal, and my back shows on a mri and ct a very bad really bad shape. and I have nerves that seems to be damage due to the surgerys and they only offering 12000 to settle the case. is this not a low offer?. I used to make 650 a week at my employer.
