It is hard to predict. They may do a monthly payment or a lump sum and cover your medical costs.

do i have to request the payment?
Expert:  Asad Rahman replied 10 months ago.

You have to fill out the paperwork to submit a claim. It is often smart to get anattorney especially if they are lowballing you.

I have submitted the claim through employer and have a case already but they dont know the diagnosis as of yet. I have not even heard from them since the initial claim. I will obtain a lawyer if I dont hear from them. I was wondering if they automatically give a lump some offer once they are informed of the diagnosis

Ok good. They will want to know the diagnosis and if you need or plan to have surgery.
