Ongoing Process
#1
Just looking for some General Info. I was injured back in Dec'13. Crush Injury when a Forklift Ran over My Leg up to the Knee Cap. There were able to save My leg after 2 Skin Graph Procedures. The injury kept Me off of Work for 4 Months. Company (Located in Illinois) took Me back. I was offered a settlement of $10,000 which I refused. They claimed I had no disfigurement which was not true. Was directed to a Plastic Surgeon by My Lawyer. Since then I have had 11 more operations to fix the appearance of My Leg. Lawyer seems to not to care about My case. In fact at one point when the settlement amount was offered, he said I wouldn't get more then that if I went before a Arbitrator. Was I wrong for turning down that amount?

there is no way of telling what evidence was available at the time to support a settlement value.
you can change attys at any time.
there will be a single fee shared by all attys on your claim.
