I reached a settlement with my worker's compensation claim in late November. This was a compromise agreement with the insurance company 3 days before the hearing was scheduled with the division. The ALJ issued an order that the insurance company must pay me 21 days from the date of the order.
21 days has come and gone.
I am wondering what my rights are when it comes to this. It seems my lawyer was just glad to be done with the case and hasn't been much help during this entire process, in fact, I put in most of the leg-work and filed the WKC-7 form myself so I don't expect much help from him.
In the state of Wisconsin is the order to pay within 21 days mean 21 calender days or work days? I've been browsing the Statutes and haven't found much yet. Is there a penalty of some sorts that is accrued?
Any help is appreciated.
