I was injured at work in March. Things WERE going smoothly--I mean I was getting my TTD, medical bills were being paid, etc. Then all of a sudden after I requested a second opinion and wanting a new doctor, I had some trouble getting my checks. I hired a lawyer and got all checks paid except for one.
What I don't quite understand is under what circumstances do people get these lump settlements? DO most people who hire lawyers for WC get a settlement?
