Settlement offer on work comp
#1
I received a settlement offer today from the wc attorney.
This letter reads:

Regarding minor work injury.
An attempt is being made regarding a settlement.
The settlement would include a statement regarding the disputed nature of the total knee replacement as well as the upper right extremity claims.

The letter reads; I have a rating of 37 % to the left lower extremity worth $9,000.00.

A rating of 10% to the right lower extremity worth $3,000.00.

With a 46% whole body.

The letter read the attorney has been given authority to offer $25,000.00 to close out all issues. The insurance company wants to settle and avoid going to court Dec 17th.

History:
The knee replacement surgery was 6/08 and by judges order.

On 1/09 information was presented at a hearing on adding to the claim, the upper right extremity &lumbar spine. (I wait to receive medical treatment for both)

No decision has been made yet and we return to court 12/17 to present additional medical evidence & for the judge to make a decision.

In my opinion this offer is totally crazy.
