ok, they have changed the site looks good. i haven't been on here in two months so update on my case. i just settled with the ic and recieved $127,500.,lawyer fees paid and 100% future medical. the ic tried to stop payments in july 05 because they said i wasn't complying with doctors orders, well the judge was having none of that he also order that they must reemburse me lost wages and and all travel and other out of pocket expensnces which the court set price at 580. per week (77 wks x $580.= $44,660. plus $1,200 for auto insurance per year, $4,000 for gas, tolls, and daycare for my daughter for all doc and pt appointments
I recieved a 68% rating. my injuries where as torn rotator cuff and labrum, broken clavical bone, all ribs on right side, never damages in arm, and not to forget loss of hearing in right ear. all this because a home owners wife let there dog loose making a furniture delievery.
now to the time it took for this to be done. i was mmi in july of this year and i recieved my check from my lawyer this morning and it was for a total of
$177,360. dollars. well after all the bills i couldn't pay over the time of my injuries and all are paid still with a healthy amount left but it doesn't change the pain nor that i can never work again so where is justice in the system.
i was always made to feel like i did something wrong and that it was my fault.
meny here can relate to feeling hopelessly stuck in the system of wc and feeling like your at the mercy of the ic but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. there really is. now the feeling of hopelessness is gone but the feeling of helplessness is there to replace it.
so good luck to all and hopefully it will workout in the end for you
