Hi every one. I am writing this for my wife Eva who works for Express Scripts and hurt her back on 02/14/03. She has had 2 surgeries and the gamit times 5 of all the tests. She was determined to be 23% whole body impaired, by the surgeon who did the 2nd surgery. It has been a long struggle and we are very tired. Our attorney is a jack ass, and I think that all of them are the samed here in AZ. At any rate, we just went through I think the 3rd set of IME's and of coarse even thou the treating Dr's say my wife can't work, and as a matter of fact, her phsychiatrist has her off now for 90 days, the IC's Dr's all say she can work with no restrictions. So of coarse, now that she has been taken off of work, and we have received maybe 3 or 4 checks, they have stopped because the IC says she can work. Our attorney has gratiously returned one of 6 messages left for him asking where the check is and let us know these little tid bits of info. Guess it would have been nice to have him explain this possibility when she went to the IME's as I'm quit sure he was aware of what may happen. This forum is a great place I have found and is if nothing else letting vent off some steam from have what we feel is a very incompitent attorney. But, so late in the game, do we dare switch? We already fired one clown who did nothing but take 25% of her check that she was already receiving before we talked with him.
Any way, we are just wondering if anyone knows what we can expect? The attorney at one time a little while ago was saying the IC may want to settle. But what the heck, now they cut off all money? Will she go with out medication? If so we are going to have a very big problem. She can NOT be without her meds, she will die from the pain. Wat, no more Dr? I mean what are we going to do???
Will and Eva
