Hi, I would like to know if anyone can help lead me to information that I need. I am thinking of cutting my losses and leaving my job. It has been a long fight but i do not have the fight left in me.
I would like to know if anyone knows if you leave you're job which you have a workers comp case, and Would not be able to find work due to disablity.
Can you file for Social Security Disability? I know that in most cases there has to be a set aside for Medicares interst, but in this case the insurance carriers and employer has never done a settlement after almost 7 years and does not show any signs of doing it. If i leave my job will they not still be responsible for medical if you have a life time medical award?
I know that I would not get the TTD or anything but I just need to know if anyone else has left their jobs and gotten on Social security with no settlement pending. Also Are you still able to get Medicare later on?Or is that bared because of no settlement and medicares interst?
I have a attorney however he is considering in his words, He is desiding if he wants to continue with my case since they do not want to settle, Can he do that and what happens if i dont leave the company and if i have a medical issue that they will not pay for and i have to go back to court? If he backs out then i will not have a lawyer to repersent me.I have tried to find other attorneys but because my case is almost 7 years old and the employer insurance company does seem to want to settle no one will take my case, not only that will i still be responsible to pay him, if they ever do?
We went to court over my adding my ankle and foot to my case due to injuries not sure how they will desided on that, but the companys lawyer only ask me one question with surprise us all. I just pary he did not pay off the judge, i do know that he visited the two doctors involved. Seemed to be on top of everything which is more then i can say for my attorney, but when we got to court then he seem so out of place, chewing gum, and couldnt find papers he was looking for.. Anyway i just want to know if anyone can help me to figure out what is best.
I am really tired and just figure that i should just cut my losses and save what little bit of sanity I have left. But have to make the best choice because I am the only one working in my housewhole. OH one more question does anyone know how long it takes to get the Social Security payment. because i need to figure out how i am going to pay my bills if i leave until it kicks in.. I would apprecaite any help..
