Here are some tips for negotiating Work Comp back injury settlements.

Restrictions are important. Do you have weight restrictions? Did you have to change jobs as a result?
This makes your case more valuable.

Did you have surgery? What kind? Fusion? Disc repair? The more complicated, the more the value increases.

Do you have future surgery needs? This shows that your impairment will get worse.

Do you have future medication needs?

Did you herniate your disc?

Do you have radicular pain running down the leg? Does it affect standing and walking?

The more impairments you can show the better the settlement value.
