Lawyer is confusing me
#1

Hello everyone, my lawyer said to me today that he will have to rewrite the settlement offer to the IC for my W/C case because of my recent approval for SSDI. He says it will decrease the amount he will now ask for, why? I was half asleep this morning and did not get a chance to ask him why, does this make sence? Since I can not perform my former job as a mechanic he was asking for 3-5 years of pay and rehab, why would the amount change? can anyone help me rationalize this statement?
Thanks in advance.

Just a shot in the dark here Gatekeeper...if you were collecting WC and SSD checks your SSD checks would be lowered so you were not over the 80% of your income allowed...I am guessing that since when you win SSD they go back usually 2 years, so that's 2 years worth of income form SS.......to me it would make everyone more agreeable because everyone involved know this. When I won my SSD they only went back two months to the date I retired after I settled my WC case.....Most folks get 2 years of back pay ...I only got 2 months.....my attorney told me they are doing this alot so that SS doesn't have to put out so much in backpay....Remember this is just my guess...a shot in the dark....


Exactley what INPAIN said ....I'm just wordier.....LOL

Thanks for the input, I was cut off in Feb 09 from W/C and SSDI is going back to this Feb only cuz I have been disabled since August 09.
