    Yes your settlement is not final until the Board approves the settlement. You can fire your lawyer but he/she will have a lien for 25 percent of settlement offer.

    You need to report your work injury to the workers' compensation carrier. The workers' compensation carrier should be paying for your medical treatment. If you can save your sick time, I would do that and use WC to pay weekly benefits (provided you are entitled to them).

    Your attorney should try and get you the highest settlement. Have him/her explain how he/she came up with demand. Unfortunately, the insurer does not have to pay your attorney separately when you settle.

    If you have not already had your change of physician, I would suggest that you exercise that option. The doctor is probably being pressured by the insurance company. If your Employer had a validly posted panel and followed correct procedures, you need to choose a doctor from that panel. If it did not, you can choose any doctor who accepts Georgia workers' comp. You won't be forced to attend work hardening if your new doctor does not prescribe it. Feel free to call me for a free...

    Yes, you do have a case. You are entitled to medical treatment; if your Employer had a proper panel and followed correct procedures, you are entitled to a doctor on their panel. If they did not, you are entitled to choose your doctor. You may also be entitled in the future to weekly benefits and an impairment rating. Feel free to call me for a free consultation .

    Yes, I would definitely recommend you talk to a workers' compensation attorney. You can seek a change of doctor if you have not had one already or a second opinion. Your attorney can also advise if you are entitled to any other benefits. I offer free consultations and can be reached at (404) 262-0500.

    No unfortunately you do not get both. 10 percent of whole body is 30 weeks. The 6 percent refers to individual body part or extremity. If to upper or lower extremity that is only 13.5 weeks. She is correct to give you higher rating (not both) unless multiple body parts injured and dr rendered separate ratings for each.
