    Default What is My Case Worth

    I need some help. My IC asked if I was interested in a settlement. My mmi is 22% I had a cervical injury and had a laminoplasty but left me with chronic pain. I also suffered a low back injury which has not been addressed because of the severity of my scoliosis and I only receive injections for that. I see my pain Dr and psychiatrist montly because of the accident. I have chronic pain and have been declared permanent and totally disabled. I am unemployable or trainable and is lucky to get out of bed daily. I now use a walking cane, wheelchair and scooter all of which I received from WC along with a handicapped bed, bathroom was renovated to be handicapped accessible. I receive bi weekly pymnts. I had worked for my employer for 31years prior to my accident. My doctor wrote a rx for a handicapped minivan(but u may have read was denied). My wife has not been able to work because she is my care giver. I dont want to get low balled. I do not have an attorney at this time. I am trying to see what the offer is. I was told my msa is $215,000 but have not seen it in writiing. Pleeez can someone help me. I keep reading there are sooooo many statues, I'm confused

    You need to consult with an attorney. Who told you the amount of the MSA? Was it the adjuster? If so request she send you a copy of this. A settlement in a case like yours is complicated and you will need legal assistance.

    Thxs, the adjuster verbally told me over the phone the MSA. I will request from her a written notice of the MSA amount as quoted. I was told to never trust the verbal, but get it in writing.
