My lawyer recieved a settlement offer today from the IC.There offer insists on a total C&R,and it is not even three years of my current weekly payment. We had asked one year ago for a little less than five years of my weekly payment and to keep meds open for ever.I had a very well paying job in a skilled trade before I was injured,and will never be able to return to that occupation or any occupation that is not sedentary in nature,this is a fact that the IC has accepted.I will not accept this offer or any offer that does not substantially increase from the present one. What I'm asking is after there first offer and probably second offer gets refused,when do they come to there senses if ever? I realize that lowballing may get some people to bite at the first offer,but how much closer to our offer does anybody think we will get if we hold out? Because I've got nothing but time and patience after they have stalled for all of this time. Thanks for your replies.
