In addition to temporary disability, you can also get a settlement. This will take place once you have reached maximum medical improvement. Your settlement will be based on anticipated future medical and your permanent disability rating. You should also file for Social Security Disability. To qualify, you will have to prove that you are permanently disabled. You will need a lawyer to help you file. Hire a local Social Security lawyer. Go on www.martindale.com. Good luck and remember to press accept so that I may get credit.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
