Re: I Received My Wcc Initial Award but Do Not Understand It
How would you know that?
Attorny 1- will not take a case unless it meets his intake..as in making a certain amount off you.
That may be true, I don't know - I've never heard of an attorney making such a statement to a client.
I imagine that a case has to be worth the time spent, attorneys can't work for the hell of it - it's a business like anything else.
An attorney has no control of the carrier, he can't give an update if there aren't any.
Attorney 2- Just send request off but gets zero to nothing back from the IC or their attorney. This is the one who will lie and before you know it..3 months have passed with no movement on your case. Rarely do you get an update unless you call or email them.
Cases can go years without movement depending on the facts, this isn't a criminal proceeding, it a civil matter.
What level would that be?
Attorney 3- the dragon who request all the information and immediately goes after the IC and their attorney to get things moving. Updates as changes happen and informs you on what they are doing. If no contact from IC side, they will take it to the next level.
I don't know what you mean by "get things moving"
Comp cases progress as the patient heals, it may take years for someone to reach MMI - what level do you take that one to?
I don't think you understand the progression of a worker comp case - nothing moves fast in this game.
Your case will move as fast as you heal and return to work or become perm disabled, no faster.
