I am on workmans comp in NM and have been for 2 1/2 years... I hurt my back pulling a 800 lb deicer...they are currently paying my med. and 3-4 times a year I am going for shots in my back... I have a disk that is now 3/4 the way out... but with what I have been doing and watching what I do this has pretty much kept me out of pain... I am planning on leaving the state and going to wyoming.. Will I have to ask for a settlement in NM or will they allow me to continue and get treatments when need in wyoming or will they say I have to come back to NM to gets meds and treatment?
