I'm in the MSA process of my Worker's Comp claim (without an attorney). I've had multiple major operations and one of my doctors is requesting another one next month. I have a couple of questions. (I've notice that most attorneys on this site, who's responding back to our questions is very short and direct). And it's understandable esp when you're not compensated for your brillant answers. But here's what I will like to know: 1. Does MOST medical treatment stops once you enter the MSA phase? Because the insurance company has not been returning calls, disapproving present treatment, and have made statements such as 'This treatment can prohibted the MSA for approval'. 2. How long does the MSA process takes? I understand it depends upon the individual and their further treatment. (And this is just a heads up) My further treatment is very extent and could get complicated because of all of my major injuries. Thanks to whoever respond! OaN: If your answer is 'This is way you need an attorney" then thanks but no thanks. Because I hired a attorney 3 yrs ago for about 3 months and that idoit never had the time for me at ALL!!!! So I've taken matters into my own hands and 3 years later I must say to myself 'JOB WELL DONE!!!'
