My attorney contacted me yesterday and advised we will have a phone conference next Thursday to come up with a settlement. I don't know what to expect, as I felt there would be a meeting in person rather than, via phone.
Also, my employer has been jumping through hoops to help me this past week, including the HR director, which is rare. I was in the process of getting another position in another city and this did not transpire and my supervisor stated he did not want to lose me. Weird huh!
I am the person who posted before with the broken foot and was denied as a WC due to doctor stating it occured due to my being a diabetic. My wife's insurance did pay some but our up front was $2,500 and we could not meet that. I was out of work from April - August of last year and we incurred lots of medical bills and I did use saved vacation and sick time to continue getting a pay check. My wife is disabled and had to bath me everyday for a month as I could not put weight on my foot at all. My attorney advises the time used with come in monatary rather than my sick time restored. I don't know what is a fair amount to settle for? Please advise me and thanks so much.
