My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: PENNSYLVANIA.
Hello, I've (35 years old/male) been dealing with a workmen's comp case for the past ten years with the aid of my lawyer for the entire time. I work for a major retail store that rhymes with "bullseye". The case is heading towards settlement as the company is asking me for a figure to settle the case. The injuries are not in dispute.
My question is about asking my lawyer for an advance against the settlement I will be receiving to help pay some current and over-due bills.
So here's the question: Is it OK or CUSTOMARY to ask your lawyer for an advance (2,000 dollars) to pay some bills when dealing with an ongoing monetary settlement where the payout will be in the upper half of the six figure range?
Thanks ahead for any help I may receive.
