19b emergancy hearing!!! - Steveo190 - 11-22-2010 11:48 AM
Hi everyone I live in Illinois,Injured back in mar of 09 I sustained a herniated disk L5 s1 . Well finally going to my so called 19b emergency hearing , my atty says we have a good case getting everything reinstated back pay ttd and further treatment ect, sounds great right? and i should be happy , i can't help but be very nervous whats the other sides atty purpose? to slip me up try to confuse me? , Your probably telling me i should be asking my atty that Question , well i will this afternoon sometime when i get to see him. I've been put on the back burner for so long ,between my atty and the other sides atty with all of the shenanigans denial of meds sending me to appointment's only to be canceled or denied , the wrong address for my checks then sending me to this ime their dr looked like one of the members of ZZ top i almost asked for his autograph, kidding a side this guy was a true Quack job . and so for the first 13 months i went with out medication, help or anything, trust me i tried every way possible ,. Your probably wondering whats my atty doing , Well he's out depositioning tom dick and harry, over kill on the depos kid you not! , so after 13 months of no help i got sick no ins so hospital charity picks up the tab, and i found out in the fine print of the paper work that charity last for one yr. But they don't tell you that i had to read the fine print,so for the last 6 months ive had a little help I'm thankful but I'm so disgusted with everything. Any suggestions besides telling the truth about my injury.

Telling the truth is your best bet, I've felt it always worked for me. Didn't speed things up but in the end it is the best route. Now I wish you luck with your hearing. Asked for a 19B in Feb 2008 with waiting for depo's and stuff didn't get hearing until Aug. Won that but WC appealed so nothing. Had appeal hearing in Feb 09 if I remember right and won that too. Still nothing. They didn't start paying me WC until the end of Jan 2010. Problem is there is not much out there to make them even do what the hearing officer say in any time frame.

We actually have different insights, so as to the both of the attorneys. You will really need to tell the consequences of your injury in the emergency hearing that you are up to. In fact, there are alibis from the hospitals to prove it.

I am new to this forum for Illinois anda word of advice.
If your attorney doesn't file a 19b-1 motion right out of the gate on either or both wage stoppage, or medical...........SUE HIM.
What is needed is a total FEDERAL investigation and a FEDERAL Grand Jury from top to bottom. Illinois is number one or two in total litigation. Illinois has more insurance companys writing workers comp insurance than 48 other states.
I have a letter from former Chairman Ruth (now a Judge) who admits to me on paper that arbitrators will kick back a mandated 180 day emergency motion (trial and appeal)and force the attorney to withdraw it (without clients knowledge) and replace it with the 19b.....the one with no statutory time limits. Knowing in advance the injured client has almost no chance of getting a 19k (penalty) or a section 16(attorney fee)
Which simply means the State has violated a workers right to due process anda fair unbiased trial and contributes to his mental, physical, and certainly financial damage.
What the law would call CIVIL CONSPIRACY against the injured of the State. The lawyers are happy with the delay, the State is in no hurrry to comply with the law and the insurance company's are happy because they can starve the injured worker to death, keep from paying for long periods of time and pay no more than they would have from the beginning. Years in fact. Lawyers stack cases and are in no hurry to get what is due the injured worker under the act, and they get 20% for doing nothing of every week that goes by.
These people are abusing power, breaking the law, and should be put in jail. THE IWCC IS CORRUPT!
