Re: Police, Fire, Corrections Heart and Lung Act
Your doc and the IME, seems convincing to me.
My lawyer says who`s to say its permanent?
Sounds like your lawyer wants it both ways.
I had an IME last fall, and even their doctor agrees that I cannot go back to full duty status.
And my injury has not gotten better.
You said " even their doctor agrees that I cannot go back to full duty status. "
So who is it he agrees with and why didn't your attorney challenge them?
You're going to have a hard time challenging your status based on could've or maybe
Could a total knee replacement in the future when needed not help the situation? That`s our arguement.
Could’ve, would've or maybe are not arguments based on facts.
It could just as well be argued that a future knee replacement may fail and make you worse.
If in the future, your condition improves, your status of permanent could be revised, until then, your status stands.
I'm not trying to talk your lawyer down but he'll have fun challenging your present status on the uncertain outcome of a future knee replacement.
Good luck with that one.
