I was told I will be fried
Your doctor needs to state in writing that you cannot drive due to medications and forward it to your employer and WC. He also needs to say that you are 100% temporarily disabled, if he's not saying it already. If he won't, then get a different doctor, quickly.

Your settlement has nothing to do with whether or not you return to work now or not (regardless of what your attorney may be telling you). I would highly suggest getting somebody else, pronto.

Your doctor also needs to file a permanency form requesting as much disability as possible. This is what determines your settlement based on a scheduled or classification loss. Scheduled loss is limited loss of use of a limb, and classification loss is severe loss of use of a limb.

Insurance companies try to force you back to work when they think there is a possibility you won't be able to work at all, in order to make a legal case for your capabilities. Returning to work could be considered grounds for the application of a scheduled loss, rather than a classification loss. Beware. Do not put yourself in danger medically due to pressure from an insurance company. They are master manipulators.

What I meant was, if I don't show up, then I have no job.. the lawyer stated that if I get fired, that it will cap my benefits, plus i will not get as much of a settlement because I got fired. The only reason I am being fired is because I have no way to work, my doctor has me no driving at all
