I've been offered two ways of settling my case 1) receive a check every two weeks and medical for the next forty years or 2)receive a lump sum for salery and medical. I'm seeking a lump sum but I have been told that if I don't take their offer (which will be a low figure) then by law they don't have to pay me a lump sum and can just sent a check every two weeks for the rest of my life. Then why offer me a lump sum settlement when they don't have too stick by their offer.
I'm 100% disabled and have been rated twice by a AME doctor. I want to take control of MY LIFE again and get the proper treatment in a timely matter and not 6 months to a year from now. That's why I'm 100% disabled because of workers comp carelessness and lack of concern for speedy treatment.
If anyone knows the laws or can direct me to the information on what I'm entitle to when I settle this case.
Peace Be With You
