Of course the CI atty doesn't agree with the Psych report, that's pretty standard.

I'd say ditch your attorney, my first one went silent and I found another one. I ended up getting what I wanted. If your attorney isn't talking then find another one. You need proper representation and it sounds like you're not getting it.

We tend to always be nice here, sad to say that we're friends who met under bad circumstances. We support each other because we've all been there, we hold each others hands, laugh, cry and occasionally go off the deep end.

Hope you get your answers, check out the attorney page, ask around, I found a wonderful friend here who recommended her attorney.

Are you seeking to settle? Is there anything else that needs to be done? Do you need further treatment? Is respondent going to send you for their own IME concerning your psych eval? What treatment will you need down the road? Does your condition mean that you will require future medical? Have you applied for SSI?

Personally if it was me I'd show up at your attorney's office and stay there until he/she talks to me.

I need a third surgery but my PTP told me most likely will make pain sindrome worst so yes future medical care is needed, last I heard from atty is that I will have to see a psych QME some time in the future.....still waiting, sad to say but I feel like a puppet. oh and ssi I am waiting for final decision.
Thank You for the info Jayne.

Then settling is way down the road. You've probably already learned that no decisions happen quickly. It's like they're hoping that you win the lottery or die.

I would of cleared fifty thousand the last year I worked. It's taken us a long time to play catch up on bills. The TTD ends this month once I reach MMI, not too sure how we'll make up that money. But God has a reason and I'm pretty confident that things will work out in the end. I've always thought I was pretty patient until the crap hit the fan over my left knee.
