Glad to know that the weblinks are helping. But what I can't understand is why didn't you originally file for permanent total disability through your comp attorney 2 years ago, not long after your injuries?
No one here can tell you what you should or shouldn't settle on, because we're not privy to all of the specifics like your own comp attorney would be.
"What do I have to do to get ptd?"
It has to be appropriately filed for on a comp claim. But keep in mind that I'm not from your state, and there are no Wyoming Comp Lawyers that are currently following this board, so we're not intricately detailed on the comp laws of your state, like your own attorney would be.
So with that said, I do indeed hope that you're making the right moves for yourself. And frankly, many people in your situation, would have already filed for SSDI. Perhaps you may want to seriously consider that option, especially if you know that you have enough work credits to be eligible for it.
Here are some more valuable websites that may come in handy for you down the road.
Also, did you know that there are pre-settlement lending companies out there, who offer cash to injured folks, while their cases are pending? There's lots of those companies, but if you decide to borrow from them, then I would only warn of the interest rates, which can be pretty steep with some of those companies.
If you're interested in checking them out, just let me know and I'll post some of them for you. There are also other agencies and organizations that can be of service to you as well. Let me know if you would like for me to post them, and it's a done deal.
