Pre-existing condition claim by WC
wt1949 Wrote:
Greetings All, and God bless,

Thanks to all who replied to my question. I do have a Lawyer and he is getting all my past records together. As I stated, I have never had this kind of pain before, pain has always been in left leg, bulging disc.

This is new kind of pain and it doesn't stop, just controlled by meds.I don't know how long this will go on. My lawyer wants me to ask for $150 -200,000.00 to see if WC will settle. My case if carried out by months. (estimated lenght of life 22 yrs) would come to $400,000. He does not think they will pay above $150,000 due to their claim of pre-existing. If I go to court and the Judge finds me any thing less than 100% disabled, WC will only have to pay me $57,000 with med. Does any one have any input about these amounts??

My WC payments stopped in Oct. 07 when Dr. put me at MMI (from a surgical stand point) but due to my restrictions and meds, my job could not offer me anything. I am terminated May 3rd (tomarrow) as this ends my one year furlough will end.

Thanks for all the input and God bless you all

hello, im new at this so please bear with me. Im dealing witha lot of the same stuff. they want me to settle i dont know where to start with a dollar amount
you should start a new thread.
you need to give your state-each is different-- put your location in your profile.
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.
Aren't you the one who fell through the rotten floor of a train car?
IMO, this is a serious injury, and IC is simply trying to cut down their costs by stating pre-existing and downplaying your experience. Back injuries are always high dollar, and usually life long, and life altering. I also would be leary of lawyer that wants to talk settlement so soon. Are you at MMI, I can't remember? As the others have said....you new injury or re-injury of a pre-exisiting one needs to be determined Prior to talking settlement amounts.
Good luck and prayers to you. LillySmile
