When you receive a scar it falls under the disfigurement statute which compensates you 0-50 weeks. You take 2/3 of what you make per week and then multiply it by the number of weeks you agree upon for your scarring compensation. It's very subjective when it comes to scarring so really comes down to whatever you can agree upon. You can hire an attorney to settle it out for you or try and settle it with the insurance adjuster on your own.See question
I got the ok for surgery 5 weeks ago but still no surgery date and no comp checks.
We get these calls all the time. The short answer is yes you can drop them at any time you see fit. If I were the lawyer involved, I would want the issue be brought to my attention so that I can try and fix it. Many times the delay is not your lawyer but the insurance carrier then again it may not be. If you raise the concerns and your thoughts that you might terminate the relationship then it may prompt action or at least prompt additional information as to why there is delay.
As for the weekly check I cannot comment because I do not know the circumstances. In order to get a weekly check you must be written completely out of work or be placed on restrictions that your employer cannot accommodate.See question

Generally you have three years to file a personal injury lawsuit. If you have a case, then most personal injury lawyers take the case on a contingency which means their fee comes out at the end of the case. I'd suggest you schedule a free consultation with a lawyer.See question

I was terminated from this job with no warning and was told to unemployment I had an uncooperative attitude. I cannot get unemployment and have been without pay since 7/13/15. I cannot go to the Dr as I have no income.
You have 90 days to report the injury. From there the employer/insurance carrier should be providing by you medical treatment. If you received that and a doctor had you on modified duty at the time you were terminated then you may be entitled to a weekly check. You shouldn't have to pay for your medical- the insurance carrier should be. Based upon the information given there really isn't enough information to answer with detail that applies to your case. Need to know whether you were getting medical treatment, were you in work restrictions, did you report the injury, etc.See question
I was injured lifting & he included unrelated Medical info on my report
They always get a medical history whether relevant or not. Once you put your medical condition into question your history becomes somewhat relevant or is may lead to relevant information. We see this all the time when the attorneys for the insurance carriers subpoena medical records from every doctor you have ever seen. It seems to be par for the course these days.See question
