Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct and prepare your response.
Honestly you should seek additional medical care for your injuries.It is clear you are still suffering here and may need more time and treatment.I would try to reengage the doctor and delay settling.This doesn't seem adequate compensation since you may need more time off and treatment.You can reject their offer and seek more care and a higher settlement based on the additional treatment.
If you give me your state I can help with lawyer referral.
You may ask that the hearing be put off as you are still seeking counsel and having medical problems and require further treatment.You can write the comp hearings officer here and seek to delay this.
I am so sorry that you are having to go through this.Try to delay the matter so you can locate a lawyer and seek further treatment.The offer here seems way too low for your situation.
I will opt out.Good luck here.
