I was hurt in the coal mines back in 2006. I fratcured my wrist and was told it was a scaphlod fratcure, The doctor that treated me told me i was fine and released me back to work 2 weeks later. I called my comp adjuster and told him what had happend, He told me not to worry t5hat he would find me another doctor to get a secound oppinoun.
When i did see a doctor 8 weeks later my fracture had turned into a nonunion fracture requireing surgery, I 've had several surgeries finialy resulting in a total wrist fusion. I have had my weekly benifits from day one and now after this last surgery my doctor tells me that i cant return to my line of work,and that i will have a permenet disibility. Workers comp wants to settell with me for well frist they offered me 54,000 and i turned that down and then they offered me what i asked for, Witch was 80,000 cash plus 2 years of collage and medical for life.
Now the funny thing is, is that i have not had my disibility rating yet, or my impairment rateing. My claim adjuster said they would give me 12% just on what they can see on my records and what i say.
My question is dose that sound like they know i can get twice that amount or are they just trying to hury thing along? I have no attornoy repersenting me at this time.
Any information on this would be helpfull!!!!!
