How does WC come up with a figure when they want to settle?

whether an agreed doc or a qualified doc is used they are all private practice physicians.

your doctor doesn't have to close down your treatment to settle.

if you are beyond the 104 weeks of temporary disability payments and have exhausted your SDI time, it may be difficult to wait out the year until your doctor is ready to declare you MMI and provide a rating.

SSDI is available to those with a year or more of disability.

Is the 104 weeks from time of injury or time that WC started paying? Cuz for the first 9 to 10 months it was state disability. But the injury was in dec of 2012 so either way the 104 weeks have not been reached. I just talked to my lawyer and he said settlement can't be reached right now cuz I just had surgery 6 weeks ago and I'm still in treatment.
