My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: IN
I posted on another section of the forum and am very appreciative for the advice given, thanks much. I had yet another question regarding my settlement. Something doesn't seem right here. When I was sent to IN for an IME their doctor reported that I was able to be employed (they denied my surgery). My hearing was six months away and they stopped my checks. I called my attorney and asked about my options. He said he called them and 'persuaded' them to continue my checks until the hearing. When I settled last week he informed me that the last 6 months of checks would be considered a 'loan' of sorts and they would take the amount out of my final settlement. I was not told that when he informed me that my checks would continue. Now they are taking over 20K out of my settlement. I had no idea it was a loan. Does this sound right? Thanks much.
