In Florida, and under the circumstances you described, my suggestion is that you speak to an attorney regarding your potential options. You may be able to "structure" your settlement, whereby the insurance carrier would purchase an annuity in your behalf which would pay you a set sum of money for life, and perhaps set it up such that your spouse (assuming you are married) may continue...

    Every state is different. It is important to consult the laws of your particular state for this question. In Florida, and under the circumstances you described, my suggestion is that your husband consult with an attorney to determine the appropriate compensation your husband is due for the loss of a finger. While amputation of an arm, a hand, a foot, or a leg involving the effective loss of use of that appendage would result in a presumption of permanent and total disability, this is not so in...

    Every state is different. It is important to consult the laws of your particular state for this question. In Florida, if you have been released to return to work by your physician with restrictions and the activity requested of you by your employer is within those restrictions, there is no reason not to return to work. Keep in mind, however, that any wages you earn as a result of this work must be reported to the insurance carrier so as to avoid an allegation of fraud being raised against you...
