    It's sad but more and more guys are being permanently disable from this $hit hole. My question is when you can no longer do the job and get kicked to the curb what kind of settlements do these guys get? I mean enough to live how long? Most guys wants careers not just F U money.

    Everybody I knew that got a settlement had to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

    I do know of one driver, on comp for the last 8-10 years that refuses to accept the settlement. A case where the company doctor royally f'ed up.

    I think the percentage of people on permanent comp is pretty small. There have been a few in my area and some are questionable.

    Its a scary thought and the way it is nowadays, I wouldn't be surprised if we start seeing a lot more of them.

    For what this job pays any perm disability payout should be in the millions. With an s on the end.

    Apparently, he hasn't. His doctor says he can go back to work, but the company doc that screwed up won't sign off. Probably afraid of a lawsuit.

    I think 3 years is max for long term disability.

    But just remember if your going to get a lawyer a good suggestion would be to get a lawyer who has beaten their :censored2: in court before.

    I am out on work comp now and I had to file a 3mo extension with the union to keep my benefits. I was told that You could be on comp for up to 2yrs, then ups wants to start the process to get rid of you or pressures you to get back to work.
