How long does it usually take after IME to get your settlement in the state of WA?
Hi everyone!
How long does it take after an IME for them to decide what your settlement is and send it out?
Sorry don't know the laws in your state but one thing I can say is nothing happens very fast in the WC system. I would guess that your IME might not have anything to do with them being ready to settle. I've had two IME's. One back in 2007 and one in 2010 and we still have not settled anything. Your IME may lie and say nothing is wrong with you so they would not offer a settlement.
Somebody should be along to give you an answer if something is set in stone in your state
Thank you for your reply. I am really starting to feel like its all a game and i am losing

.... you can call Project HELP at 1-800-255-9752. They are a cooperative effort between L&I and the Washington State Labor Council (AFL-CIO), and can provide you with individual claims assistance on your behalf.

Project HELP staff can assist you with both self-insured and state fund claims, but they are not attorneys and do not give legal advice.

Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
1171 gave you some info that should help. WC is a game many times and the injured worker loses most of the time. Best thing you can do is arm your self with as much information as you can get. Good luck
