    Did you have an attorney? I am not quite sure what happened. There should not be a problem for a settlement under $25,000 unless you were already on Medicare. I am also not sure what you mean about Medicare not being happy. Unfortunately, you will need to discuss this with a lawyer to see what is going on. If you did not have a lawyer, you might be able to get some explanation from the lawyer for the insurance company because they may have some responsibility too.

    You need to find out from your attorney why your checks stopped. They should not have just stopped without a better explanation. In over payment situations, the weekly checks can be reduced by a small amount to pay off the over payment. I would also discuss the value of your case with your attorney. Good luck.

    Unfortunately, there are very few attorneys who will take a case on appeal because it is extremely difficult to get a decision reversed. As far as continuing medical, it would depend on the wording of the decision. Your prior attorney should help your brother understand the ramifications of the decision. I wish you good luck.

    I am sorry that your family is having so much trouble because of your husband's injury. On top of having to deal with your injured husband, the financial strain of the reduced income provided by workers' compensation creates hardships for many families. Unfortunately, loss of consortium claims are not allowed in workers' compensation. Those are the claims that spouses have in personal injury cases. The law, in personal injury cases, recognizes that the spouses of injured people are also...

    AS the other attorneys have mentioned, I would recommend that you have a conversation about your concerns with your lawyer. Has a Medicare Set Aside Trust (MSA) been prepared? You will need this because you have applied for SSDI. Also, are your pain meds covered by WC? It sounds as though you are paying for them out of pocket and it is unclear why they are not covered by WC. Hopefully, you will be awarded SSDI and Medicare will eventually provide medical coverage for your meds. I am sorry...

    There are many attorneys who now represent injured workers that used to work for either insurance companies or law firms that represent insurance companies. I think the better procedure would have been to reveal this information at the beginning of the representation. You can always change attorneys if you are dissatisfied with your lawyers representation.

    If you cannot return to the job at which you were injured, you need a lawyer. A lawyer can help make sure that you get all of the benefits to which you are entitled. I would get one now.

    If a claim has been fired, the State Board already knows that you have no insurance. I would recommend calling the State Board to figure out the status of your case. Also, your case is not over just because the attorney withdrew. Another attorney could pick up the case.

    Unfortunately, if you cannot get money from your employer to pay the bill, you are ultimately going to be responsible for the bill. The hospital will say that you received the services. Make sure to include the bill when seeking damages from your employer. This is one of many big problems that arise when employers do not have workers' compensation insurance.
