question...i am a workers comp patient from a car accident in march 2006. my comp has paid for everything i ever needed, and never had one problem with them. they even reimbursed me for a palm pilot.
anyway...i now have a prosthesis, as i had my left leg amputated about the knee. this was just a couple months ago in feb. im done with therapy, as i "graduated." i see my primary, the surgeon, once a month, but thats only due to state law, that i have to see him once a month. he said i normally wouldnt really have to. i do see my prosthesis (or however its spelled!) once a week or so...for adjustments. im thinking my case will be closing soon.
and..ive never had a lawyer. i plan on getting one for the settlement offers, but i havent had any offers. when will i start receiving them generally? also, will i really need one? from the charts i see i will get 50 months of my salary times 55 percent. (crap, basically)...can a lawyer do better? or can i do worse? help!!!
and thank you in advance!!!
