Call and ask your Attorney. You are paying him for his services. Why did you not ask the Attorney when he said Congratulations if you did not understand?

It takes time to get a final settlement.

i tried to but he had to run and go to his next case and i called office and hes still in court so i gota wait.

i know settlement takes awhile i just want my backpay and monthly payments been out of work since january and no payments plus no payments for meds tho today he said they approved all treatment and that i did get hurt at work.. so idk

I wouldn't of let your lawyer go until you understood everything that it was alleged that you won. With your fractured spinal column I would be looking into SSDI even though you're very young. You need to have a plan in place for payments, medical, housing, transportation, personal assistance, rehab, etc.

You won but it doesn't seem quite like it does it?

update- spoke to wcb and decision of last weeks hearing. is they aproved medical treatment .. and the insurance company requested i get ime before any payment awarded..

so by next hearing in september do you think they will award payment after i get the ime im owed 14k backpay so far plus 2k in prescription reciepts...

They're just putting it off as long as they can. Stupid on their part, its not likely you'll give up at this point, but they like to be in control and make you miserable.

i basically won. well i proved my case atleast.
got letter on decision today it says , i had a work related injury involving the neck and left arm.based upton the nature of this injury it is possible that the claiment will have a permannt disability. additional monetary awwards will be awarded if the injury results in perm restriction or loss of use of extrem. however at this time there is not sufficent medical evidence for permanant disability.

meaning i have to have my doctor give me an mmi and % rating

and then ic will try to fight it ofc

but i have a good case , im not lieing at all i am truly injured.


also i had an appointment with binder and binder to see if they will take my ssd case , she decided to take it and said im the youngest person they every approved without letters from doctor.

i applied for ssd june 1 , going to their IME today atleast i have it going i know ss takes like 2 yrs.

it says case is continued for carrier to produce consultant report of disability.
