Hi everyone! Hereís my long storyÖ
I have a comp case open since 2013. I have received TTD for 52 some PPD for weeks following basically in 2013-2014. I have two injured scheduled body parts my knee and my ankle or leg and foot.
My knee I was awarded 22.5% loss use in 2015. I was not paid anything since I was told they had paid me more than the award. I thought TTD benefits were not subtracted from the SLU? They were here and kept the entire SLU award. My lawyer said that it is correct. I was also awarded 0% SLU for my ankle at that time even with surgery because of an error in my doctorís reporting. There is nothing in my Ecase folder reflecting that they kept this award payment or why.
Fast forward to 2019 I had to have a second ankle surgery. Finally in 2022 getting an award for 25% slu of my ankle plus 21 weeks of protracted healing, agreement arrived at by stipulation. My hearing was December 20th the decision filed December 22nd. My lawyer said that I would be getting this full amount after what happened the last time, I wanted to be sure.
I have not received a check yet at all. I imagine they will have postmarked it after the 10 days if so, I will ask for the additional penalty for making my life terrible. Yes, out of spite.
I did see a SROI-CB in my folder filed by the insurer 12/24 which I donít quite understand unless this is standard after an award. Today I logged into my Ecase and there is an SROI-PY form dated 1/3 stating they paid the larger part of the award in 2013 and then only a small amount for protracted healing and the incorrect amount to my lawyer paid 12/24. Anyone have any experience with these forms and what they might have said before you received your award. What do I do aside from call my lawyer if itís incorrect.
My lawyer has Covid and is out until at least Thursday and I am sick to my stomach about all of this. I am pretty sure my lawyer isnít great which isnít helping how badly I feel. Heís nice but, is he incorrect on some of this stuff?
Thanks in advance for any help or guidance here. Happy New Year!
