Workers comp wants to settle my claim but offered $5,000.00 for my 11% full body disability, a left knee injury. I've been paid out $8,880.00 total to date. I met with with the Orange County workers comp consultant, information and assistance officer with the workers comp legal council. I was advised by the consultant that $5,000.00 was no where near enough money. I have no idea what I should counter offer and will they come back with a counter-offer of their own?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
