    Default Settling My Workers Comp Case

    I just wanted to say I settled. ($656,000.00) No there are not too many numbers. Also to say PLEASE DO NOT settle for less than you know it is worth. The more your medical is the more your case is worth. (especially if the medical is ongoing into the future). Just hang in there and push that damn atty. HARD.!! Most cases He cannot get paid if you don't settle. And don't settle unless you are covered for the future in cash or coverage. PERIOD!!!

    Anon - Congratulations and hope everything works out for you folks in the future. Was that amount before or after the attorney fees? By the way, when you get the Ford Explorer for Alan you can pick up a 2005 Mustang for me. Ha...Ha... My Crown Vic has over 250,000 on it. Good Luck and Best Wishes!

    My case worker stated that he had no interest in settlement of my case, he was just going to ride it out. I need to settle, the stress of dealing with WK insurance company has caused me to have to take medication.

    Background: receiving benefits for 3 years.
    80% lost of
    pain management = pescribed medicaton

    What would you do now... (Want to settle)

    Congratz Anon,

    If by chance your in Calif, can you email me your attys name, mine died and I cant seem to find another I can trust.

    I'm more worried about getting the future medical I was awarded and greatly need as opposed to the $$.
