I'm on Kansas. I'm a paramedic and I hurt my back. I have some herniations and alot of pain. The doc is doing a fusion of l5 s1. I go in for it the 21st. He says I won't be able to return to EMS. This is all I've done for 10 years and I love my job. I don't know anything about disability or workers comp and I'm sitting home with alot of time to worry about what will happen and what to do. Is there a settlement? How long will they pay me? Can I go back to school? Should I get a lawyer? Thanks.
