Hi guys. I have posted before.. since then I won my hearing and have been receiving benefits.
I am currently doing vocational rehab, and I will be going to a 2 year school.
my questions start with this.
I called work comp to ask questions.. first off she said that they do not settle claims. (was trying to explore all options)
then she said that if I want an impairment rating I have to file something and then travel to ND to an appointment to get one,
my questions are this.
1.) I thought they do settle, I don't know If she is lying or what
2.) what do I have to file to get it,
3.) what are the pros and cons of traveling up there for a rating
before I start school, I wanted to explore a settlement because I was going to go to school for construction management. but its a 4 year degree and they only cover 2 years,
it seems like I am getting the run around and I am willing to go thru the school but if there is an amount I can be comfortable with I would rather be done with them all together. I have been dealing with them almost 2 years now, and the thought of 2 years of school and 5 years of benefits after is really unappealing to me.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am at MMI and I have permanent restrictions from my neck and shoulder. so I should be guaranteed a rating
