Open medical question
#11
The company they hired they had them close my case so I didn't know what was going to happen now. Lawyer called today and said he got the paperwork for the settlement and wanted me to come in to talk about it. Reminded him I didn't want to take the settlement now.

I'm sorry manley for whats about to happen, sounds like mis communication between your lawyer and yourself... This is where the stress kicks in as your lawyer is going to tell you to take it and how you need it. This happened to us twice with our attorney, needless to say I knew what I needed as well as he did.. I would have settled my medical if back and hip surgery wasn't expected in the future.. It has been a thorn in my side ever since knowing the ins carier has total control of approving scripts and needs. As far as your attorney retiring , is he the sole owner.. We asked about this with ours, he said he plans on being around for a long time as he is mid 40's.. But he is one of 3 partners with the firm and if something would happen to him they would have me covered......(( cant be any worse off with out him knowing the ins is still playing games with my medical)))...

In Calif, on 1/6/14 I allowed a settlement with lifetime medical for multiple body parts, as I had a PD 0f 46% on my left knee back in 1989, the atty said I had to settle for less, we settled for 56%. They did not fully pay me and refused to provide an accounting, we go to court 4/13/15 for that issue, however, for the last 6 months they have denied my long prescribed and paid by WC pain meds and all other AME recommendations although the court order states the AME's recommendations are to be followed. My health insurance has been helping me pay for my meds, I am not receiving denial letters from the claims examiner to file appeal on this physically addictive meds, the only one that helps me, AME agrees with pain mgmt. doc, atty has filed appeal on 2 denials he received, my doctor files appeals and has peer to peers but they are denying everything, I am interested in a medical buyout and my atty asked if I was, however, I understand that this is not a court ordered agreement and how would I do it? Do both sides just come up with a number and if they agree how do I get paid and my atty? a man of very little explanation so I appreciate your input, I am 61 and multiple parts covered including spine, bilateral shoulders, bilateral knees, cervical, wrists, elbow

you should start your own thread and not hijack this topic.
each state and each worker has their own issues.
for the many that search these posts for help with their issues its better if you keep questions/topics separate.
