    I lost my left index finger at work about two months ago and I'm still seeing a doctor.My question is do I have to do or say anything to collect a loss of use settlement.

    Some-one else may be by in order to point you in the right direction. My only suggestion would be to discuss this with both your Employer as well as your Dr.- or have you already done so ? The sooner, the better.

    NOT to make light of your accident, but I have oftentimes wondered what a difference it might make if we had not been born with an index finger to begin... with.

    Good Luck

    The schedule is different in every state. After your medicalcondition stablizes your doctor has to send in a report discribing the loss and any other restrictions or impairments. You shouldn't have to do anything until they contact you.

    I guess that leaves you with only one other choice.

    Yours.

    Where settlement is concerned, a lot of times, if you don't ask or mention it the adjuster will let the file die a natural death.

    If it were me, after I was put at P&S or MMI, I'm calling my adjuster to talk $$$.

    Of course if you retain an attorney, they supposed to help with that, but some just want their cut of your settlement money without the work.

    Call 'em.
