If you are still in pain, you should continue treatment. In my opinion if you have a good lawyer he should be fighting to get you well. I was involved in a car accident in 2000. I had wiplash. My lawyer had me settle with the insurance company. I continued to have pain for 5 years while continuing physical therapy on my own. 10 years later I have herniated and bulging discs in my neck and the muscles of my neck are in spasam (whiplash type condition).
I don't think that this condition is from the previous accident. I did recover and was pain free. But I will never know how healthy I could be today if I had insisted that I be fully recovered before settling with the insurance company.
You have the right to be restored to physical health. Your lawyer should fight for that right. Good Luck!
