What if the EMG is negative, and now workmans comp is giving up on me. And their 90 days is going to be up on the 10th of Oct, 2000. Probably deny me, even tho im still in pain???



: Whether your injury is worth a lot or a little is a function of the following:

: - The basis of liability for the injury,
: - The objective level of proof of the injury,
: - The nature and course of treatment, and
: - The person injured.

: If your injury is work related, and your claim is for compensation benefits, then there is a schedule which the judge applies to determine the amount of your award. If your injury is not work related, or there is a third-party at fault for the injury, then your claim is not restricted to the worker's compensation schedule, and the amount of your award/settlement/jury verdict is not limited by the arbitrary comp schedule. Whatever the case, your should have an attorney. Goto MyFreeAttorney.com for more help.

: If you have a 'third-party' claim, and strong objective proof of CTS on an EMG, with surgery, then your case is very valuable. In some cases, it is worth over $100k..... But it depends on the particular circumstances of your case.

: Bottom line: Get an experienced attorney!
