I have been waiting 5 months now just to get a hearing date....is this normal???
Work comp asked my lawyer if we could settle and my lawyer faxed them a proposal about 5 weeks ago and still no word.

Depends on the courts backlog....once settlement talks started it was nearly a year for me till everything was signed it depends on how soon the 2 sides can agree on an amount....

My case has been sitting for over a year waiting on the commisioners to rule on settlement. From what I have been told there is a back log of cases and they will get to it, but I have to wait it out.
May God send his angels to hold you in his arms

From what you've posted here, the IC put a "feeler" out to your lawyer regarding possible settlement BEFORE the Hearing. Your lawyer in turn wrote a proposal and faxed it to them weeks ago. You need to get your lawyer on the horn and see what's up with that.

As far as the Hearing, it could be another 5 months waiting just for a date.

Rising,

Didn't you get a permanent impairment rating? Did their ic have you go for one with their doctor? What is the hearing about? Sorry, I thought it might be your hands if I recall.

I just got my permanent impairment award mailed to me Wed. after a decision from my hearing on ratings/medications a month ago. I was just curious what the hearing is being set up for. What is in dispute?
carpal tunnel recurrence/ neuropathy / RSD.
1/29/07 injury date. Permanent. PIR settlement 8/4/08 10%
