    Default Settlement Advance

    I have received a 5%PPI with restrictions due to a bulged disc in my lower back from a previous employer. My attorney seems to think that we can get a 6x impairment rating due to the fact that I am only 25 and have done manual labor all of my life. I just want to know if it is possible to get an advance on the settlement because I am facing alot of bills right now. I am able to work, but under restrictions. Not making nearly enough to pay my bills right now. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. God Bless you all!

    LilZerO - In Ohio you can request a Lump Sum Advance that will be repaid by withholding a certain $ amount from each check. Even when the advanced amount has been repaid, Ohio requires you to continue to pay for the lifetime of your claim. I had my back against the wall and was losing my perverbial you know what so I requested an advance. I have already paid that advanced amount back more than double and am working on #3 with almost 13% of my check still being withheld. ..those wc folks are generous-to everyone but the injured worker. You should not need a lawyer if you wish to get an advance. Lil-do you have an insurance policy that perhaps you could borrow on?
    Good Luck and keep your chin up.
