My case went to trial and no decision was reached by the judge as to whether the plaintiff was actually an employee or not and eligible for benefits. The judge was notified that the case was out for settlement but no settlement has been reached. Another hearing was requested by plaintif's lawyer because of lack of a firm settlement offer. Can someone please tell me what happens now? Is there another trial, does the judge now make a ruling from the trial? I was told that the plaintiff's attorney now has to sue me in a section 11 case, and to not do anything. Unfortunately my attorney isn't really a WC one, and I don't know, and I don't know whom to ask now. I need a new one, but don't have one yet.
Would someone PLEASE be kind enough to let me know how this all works? So stressed out over this. Thanks so much for any help!
