I had a hearing in January and the Judge has now scheduled a mandatory mediation . They previously stopped my payments and now threatening medical . Me said to go back to work . My Dr . has me on light restrictions that my employer will not accommodate . My neurosurgeon had said I need a chi joint fusion . I have loose herniated disc along with bilateral chi joint dysfunction . Ins co months ago offered 15 , 000 to settle . ( this before knowing surgery is needed ) also , my Dr . is being deposed on 3 / 12 . what could I expect ?
