    Default Why is It So Hard to Get Open Medical in Indiana

    I’m 37 years of age and had a work related injury that turned into 3 knees surgeries (the last one being partial knee replacement). I have a very helpful attorney and is going to fight for me to have open medical, but I’m curious as to why it seems so difficult to get. My attorney has been vague on this topic. I’m looking to have another 3-4 knee replacement surgeries in my lifetime. Any insight is greatly appreciated.

    The only way to keep medical open is to never settle your case.
    The reason for settling is to get rid of you and close the claim - It wouldn't make sense to cash out the wage loss side and keep medical open, it defeats the purpose of settling.
