Good evening. Your ability to resolve this claim will be based on a number of factors. First, did your doctor offer an opinion on permanency? If he is saying that you are 100% disabled, is that on a temporary basis? He may not believe that you are ready for permanency just yet. If your doctor does offer an opinion on permanency, the insurance carrier will likely want to have you examined by their consultant as well. From there, negotiations can take place if all of the parties are willing. If
Not depositions may be needed so that a judge can ultimately make a decision on your degree of permanency. Generally when their shoulders are involved, you will end up with a schedule loss of use. There are other ways to settle your claim as well, including a section 32, but remember all parties need to agree in order to settle the case. Wishing you the best of luck.
