Settlements/Lawyers -- Utah
#2
I too have recurring carpal tunnel syndrome of my dominant hand with neuropathy. The doctors all said that the surgery cannot be repeated and my EMG showed slowing of the median. I was put at MMI and the doctor put me at permanent. I am eligable for a settlemet but when i went for my PI ( permanent impairment ) rating, the ic did not like it as it was to high at 19% because it is my dominant hand and effects my ADL's. The doctor who preformed the PI rating said that my medical will stay open and i will get a settlement. The IC has set me up for a IME in a few weeks to dispute my injury and say it is caused from the origional surgery 10 yrs. ago.

Make sure that if they offer you a settlement, that you make sure your medical is left open. Every state is different, but keep that in mind when you settle.
carpal tunnel recurrence/ neuropathy / RSD.
1/29/07 injury date. Permanent. PIR settlement 8/4/08 10%
