Hello all I have a problem that I hope I can get some advice on, I was hurt last year I cut the end of my thumb off at work, now I went to the doctor and had the my thumb sewn up and my last doctors visit was march of this year. now the problem is the doctor told me back when I first starting visiting him that I would get am inpairment rating at the end of my visits. well the problem is that on my last visit my docoter had a sub come in to c me. well i didnt mention the impairment rating I just figured my reguler doctor would send the info in to the insurance office. well he didnt. now im going on week 3 with the claims adjuster and the doctors office trying to get them together on this. the claims adjuster said she got the last message from the doctor saying my visits are over but the doctor didnt sent a impairment rating so I want get a check until he does. well I talk to the doctors office and say they have sent the insurance adjuster all the papers she need. so now I feel like I am just getting the runnaround here because they act like they cant get a hold of each other and resolve this. I dont have a problem getting them on the phone myself. I thinking about getting a lawyer involved and c If I can get it dont that way. but dont know for sure I dont want to spend money on a lawyer if I can get it resolved without one. I just feel frustrated bacause I think this could have be done in one day and now 2 weeks later still no check. the last time I talked to the insurance lady she said she would call the doctors office that day and get them to send her an impairment rating and she would send me a check when the rating came in that was on monday and now its saturday and nothing so im stuck. I ran out or unemployment two week ago and I did talk to a lawyer at first and he said I should get around $18000 and that money would change my life right now. but I dont have a thing right now and in need of the money. so any advice is welcome and thanks.
