      No one here is a doctor. We have not evaluated you nor seen your medical reports. As such, it is impossible to tell whether 8% or 11% are appropriate. You also do not mention what the accident actually was or what treatment you have had or is being recommended.

      Based solely on my previous experience, anything around the 10% mark is typical for injuries where surgery is not indicated or performed and the follow up is as general as yours (prn for meds and conservative measures). At only 24, it would be rare for any injury to prevent you from working going forward and you do not mention that you are unable to work.

          What did the company do that was negligent? I ask for a reason.

          It is really hard to understand your posts when you do not use sentences or punctuation.

              If you don't currently have an attorney representing you in your case, it might not be a bad idea to get one to help you navigate through the system.

                WC is a no fault system and what you describe wouldn't be one of the few exceptions. So while you may blame your employer, according to the law, it was just as much your fault for not being more careful walking around. It is rare for any back injury to not have potential surgery listed as a future possibility. I honestly wouldn't put too much stock or worry into it.

                Again, 10% is pretty common for a non-surgical back claim.
