    Default Workers Compensation Settlement Issues

    My injury happened in Michigan. I have been receiving weekly benefits since my doctor released me from work. I hired an attorney and he requested a settlement. The insurance company and I agreed to an amount and now nothing has happened. I dismissed my attorney because he has done nothing, other than the original call to the insurance company regarding the settlement and he was actually ok with the dismissal because he realizes he has done nothing! My claims adjuster continues to tell me that she is waiting for an "ok" from my employer, but she believes the settlement amount is fair. Just before I fired my attorney, he stated I should draft a "10 day" letter and send it to the insurance carrier to "speed things up." Does anyone know what this is, should I do it and if so, how? Thank you.

    In general terms a "ten day letter" is a letter which asks for a response within ten days.
