I decided to come on the site to see if people are going through what I had gone through..and unfortunately things haven't changed much!!!I can't believe I last posted 7/2008 and here it is 1/2010 and I am still waiting for a settlement. 12/09 I was finally able to return to the job I love...flying for a major carrier..After being out since 6/2007. I was out that long because Gallagher Bassett refused to send me to a neurologist..kept sending me to orthopedics..when it turns out I have nerve damage in my neck!!So my pain management Dr. ..who GB sent me to...finally gave me shots in the right area and I felt human again...after 1 1/2 years of pain. After flying again for a year, it still bothers me on rainy days or on descent in the air...but I will live with it. I went to my Dr months ago and their Dr. the beginning of December..my lawyer has a court date of Jan 21 to discuss settlement...is the end near???Please say it is!!! Anyway..I didn't need surgery so I am a lucky one..but the Dr. said I will need shots from time to time. Oh well..anything to keep my job!! Hang in there everyone...eventually you'll have your day in court!!!
Does anyone know if your settlement amount takes into consideration how long you were out with the injury...or is that not considered??Just wondering...
PS I forgot..the judge told my lawyer we should sue Gallagher Bassett personally for how they handled my case. They have a horrible reputation..I feel bad for anyone dealing with them..
