    Default Bicep Tendon Repair

    Hello I was injured on July 22. I tore my distal bicep tendon and went through surgery on sep 9th. The surgery was a failure and Iím going to be going through my second surgery next week. Iím curious as to if I should expect a rating/settlement once the everything is all healed up. Also curious as to if anyone else has had this kind of injury/surgery and if so what kind of rating was received or what should I expect to get without being screwed by the insurance company.

    It's impossible to even give a close guess, everyone heals different, has different wages, and other factors.
    What others have gotten means nothing to your case, each case is unique the facts of that claim.
    You better consult a lawyer and have him do an evauation of your claim, the initial consult is free.

    Well, first, did the insurance carrier accept liability for the injury?
    The North Carolina Court of Appeals has held that "In contested Workers' Compensation cases today, access to competent legal counsel is a virtual necessity." Church v. Baxter Travenol Labs, Inc., and American Motorists Insurance Company, 104 N.C. App. 411, 416 (1991).

    Thanks for your input Tony.

    Yes. They have been covering everything with no issues so far. I made the claim as soon as I felt my tendon tear. Iíve had zero issues with the insurance company so far.
