Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and have read some great posts. I am in CA. And was injured Nov 1st of last year. I tore the meniscus in both knees. I had my first surgery march 5th on my right knee. Partial meniscectomy, chondroplasty, patellaplasty. And I am still in pain. My 2nd surgery was yesterday. I will find out what all they did next week. Except for physical therapy approval, everything has gone smooth with wc. My brother keeps telling me that I should have a lawyer to make sure I don't get screwed. Do I need one? Other than wc taking care of my surgeries, medications, and physical therapy. Am I entitled to anything else. I don't understand all this talk about ratings and settlements. Can someone please advise.
