SETTLEMENT wo attorney
(05-27-2016, 03:41 AM)CA spine injury 1256 Wrote: I have a spine injury, 360 spine fusion approved, discectomy approved.

Defense offered to settle. I said I'm interested and we are actively engaged in negotiating a settlement. But they keep asking if I scheduled the surgery. Why do they keep asking if I scheduled the surgery while we are negotiating settlement?

2nd issue, I had a minor car accident 3 months after work injury. PI attorney is handling that case & he requested settlement for the 360 spine fusion.  Should I tell the PI attorney to withdraw settlement with 360 fusion since my fusion is approved through WC?
DA wants all details of the PI case. He asked if there's a settlement & if there's a civil case filed?

What should I do with my PI case?  Since defense is wanting to settle.

What dollar value should I be looking at for future medical since surgeries are approved?

I appreciated your help!

They are asking this because they may offer to close your claim by a C&R and this will be different if you go ahead with the surgery.

I agree with 1171 and both of your attorney's (work comp and civil) should be forthcoming with all information to each other. Something does not sound right with both your car accident attorney and work comp attorney stating they/defense will cover cost of fusion. Is this correct?

  I recommend getting a second opinion from a neurosurgeon who specializes in spine surgery (not brain) and google your doctors.
I am not an attorney.Anything I write should not be considered legal advice.I am writing from my own personal experiences,which is not from any sort of legal background. You should consult with an attorney over legal issues. In California, if you cannot get an attorney you can consult with an I&A officer.
