I'm 53 and hurt my knee at work, broke my right tibia, tore my meniscus in three places the doctor operated on it said it was fixed. Went back to work for three months and the right knee went out and tore my meniscus in two more places the doctor operated again, but this time he gave me restrictions and I could not do my job anymore. My employer wanted to settle for $45000 so I got a lawyer and after we went through mediation we settled and I ended up getting $294000 after my attorney was paid. My advice to any one getting hurt at work get an attorney. They have one and they will try to screw you...

If they are going to cover your medical for life, you need something in writing, plus the check they gave you is a joke, at this point if you don't want to hire an attorney, then do not settle, at least you will get a paycheck, and medical, but at any time they can screw you over, and you don't have an attorney they will basically do what ever they want, stop payments, delay treatment, so on

I'M 43 I INJURED MY KNEE AT WORK ENDED UP HAVING A TOTAL KNEE REPLCEMENT. A BUILD UP OF SCARE TISSUE DOES NOT ALLOW THE REPLACEMENT TO WORK OR FUNCTION PROPERLY. I FOUGHT COMP. FOR OVER A YEAR. I WILL NEED A HIP REPLCEMENT PLUS MY RIGHT KNEE FIXED. I NOW RECIEVE MY WEEKLY COMP. PLUS MY DISABILITY. I WILL NOT SETTLE, THEY WILL PAY ME TILL THE DAY I DIE, MY LEG IS WORTH MORE THAN 40,000 TO 50,000.

I have been searching for some kind of ball park figure for several weeks now with zero results. Why is it so difficult to find an estimate. My on the job injury is so sever that I will be needing a knee replacement. Get this! I am too young to qualify for a knee replacement according to my employer appointed surgeon. I was told to find a different line of work and learn to deal with the pain. I begged for alternitive treatments and was told there nothing further he could do. The workers claim adjuster sent me a one time only check for 1,327 dollars and advised me lifelong medical will be provided for the injury. She refused to sent me a hard copy of life long medical care stipulation. Can any one give me advise that does not involve hiring a money grubbing attorney?
Kindest Regards,

Stevie
