Letter From My Attorney
#21
everyone expects to live longer.
it's not a fortune teller; the chart is a statistical projection-it doesn't apply to any individual.
if you know how much your fee will be, just increase your settlement amount by that figure--no need for wording.

or negotiate for "new Money" or net so the deductions don't surprise you.

It does all seem like a crap shoot! I have been looking into settling and the IC has not responded to a letter sent by my attorney, which I guess is ok. But really, by the calculations @ 75% permanently partial disability over my life expectancy, they would have to pay me almost $800,000 and to settle is way less. But they bank on me dying first!

I hope it all works out for you C_F and that you get and amount that sets you comfortable, bcuz nobody gets rich or enough to forget the pain! But I am guessing living beach front might help a lot! Smile

Like 1171 says, the "mortality tables" are based on an overall expectancy, not on the specific individual. Many factors are taken into consideration as a whole, and then "averages" are applied.

That I do understand.. but would it be possible for my attorney to negogiate my attorney fees to be paid by them and not by me...is that a possibility??

I suppose it's possible, but not very probable. You retained the attorney to work for you, therefore, you are liable for his fees (out of any compensation you might receive). It's doubtful that the IC will agree to pay their lawyer, then pay your lawyer to challenge them.

Still, I think it's been suggested that you calculate what the attorney fees might be, then add that to any demand you might make.
