Re: How Long Before I Must Settle
As the example I used in your other thread, no one can force you to settle nor can anyone force you to have surgery but make sure your attorney has everything in order, as the lifetime benefits in NYS were altered and effected everyone injured after 03-13-2007. I was lucky(ha ha ha a lot less salary) that I have life time cash and medical benefits but with the new laws not being IW friendly is the reason why I can only stress you retain a knowledgeable workers compensation attorney. Oh, remember what you wrote about attorneys making a quick buck off WC clients? WC attorneys hardly make big bucks and rather not be bottom feeding but have to make ends meet by representing comp victims!
**Have you filed for SSDI; if not do so NOW!!!***
Knowledge is a beneficial tool for the injured worker!
