    I don't know about the amount, maybe your lawyer can give you an idea of the range.

    In the meantime keep talking to God, He fills us with strength to get through everything!

    Take your time considering the offer, a day or two?
    And it is just an offer, you can offer to settle for a higher amount.

    It is your pain and your life that has been changed!

    Blessings and prayers,

    Lindsey

    i got into an accident ( i was sleeping in passenger side) and we flipped the truck over a few times,,,ripped half my scalp off,,broke 6 vertebrates in my neck ,, and couldnt move my right arm.,,,,,,,it was easier to go through then the disability.
    and with workmens comp.,, your lawyer will get what,, probably between 30 and 45% of the settlement,,,,,,they get paid ,, then you do,,,,,, then in some cases, the comp. insurence can pay you over time,,,,,make you wait 10 years before they get you paid off
    ,,,,i didnt even get a chance for a lawyer,,,,the dude didnt have insurance,, and no one will go near it unless i paid up front.,,,, man i wish i could lie good nuff to be a lawyer,,hehe [​IMG]
