A: A Texas attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for four weeks. And this is not a question suited for a brief textbox response here. Not to evade your question - but this is a very important decision that you should discuss with your attorney. Your attorney has all your file documents, including the findings of your latest IME, and they are in the best position to advise meaningfully. Good luck
