I just spoke to my attorney, he is going to work up some numbers and then he said we would be intouch. Well at that time I will make and appointment and sit down with him and we will discuss it all.

I will squeeze there like a darn turnip, and not like a dried up one either. LOL

C_F the biggest difference is you and your wife....if you take a flat settlement and your lawyer fixes it so it is spread over a lifetime it doesnt affect your SSDI so much but are you and your wife good with money? or will you two go thru it like grass thru a goose?
on the other hand if you take it weekly and God forbid something happens to you its done your wife gets nothing more....
We took the settlement paid off our farm and everything we owed...you just dont tempt fate.....

I was sitting in the loby of the Orthos office and my attorney called today. He called to let me know where we are at with a possible settlement. I has been waiting on numbers from my employer on wages. He satated he talked to an old attorney friend of his today on my claim for what ever reason. Said he would have all the numbers he would need in order to get numbers ready to present to me. Said he would be in touch soon. I let him know wife and I are heading out tomorrow to Myrtle Beach for a week, so he said I would have a letter waiting at home when I get back with all the information. So guess the settlement is starting to roll. I will be in touch with my daughter while gone, as she is staying at my house to take care of our dogs. so as soon as the letter arrives she will call me with the numbers. Just hope they are good. He did say if they do not want to gives us the nummers then we would pursue permenant total disability through wc. That is where we are today.

Got a letter today from my Attorneys Office, in it he is explaining setteling, he gave me some numbers to look at... and explained how the numbers were arrived at. Goes on and talks about them reduceing it to todays dollars and gives some highs and some lows. Gives me the life expectancy of a male from the charts that the BWC uses. Now I am suprised that when I research the life expectancy of male today I come up with 79yrs of age. My daughter in law is a dr and she is here for the week end and I asked here that question and she believes it to be in the 80's. The BWC shows it to be 74.. So that only gives me 19 more yrs to live...Hell I expect to live longer than 74....Any thoughts on that. I have one more question to ask everyone on here, before I get back to my Attorneys the first of the week, My question goes out to all who have settled. Has anyone ever negoiated and bees successful at getting in there settlement to have their attorney fees paid for my their wc insurance co or employer. I would like to have that put in my offer. Also they want numbers by Dec 1, Guess they want to put this to bed by the end of the year. Could be a great Xmas or maybe not so great of one. Could put me closer to beach living. Hope some have answers for me this week end.
