    Post: Anyone else been cheated out of rightful findings???

    Posted by Cookie on 10/03/08

    Has anyone been extremely upset at their findings??? I was
    in the original settlement which should have netted me
    about 350K after legal fees.My laywer strongly suggested I
    opt out and take the 7th ammendment because he said the
    trust was running out of money and I could potentially get
    nothing if I stayed in the original settlement. I was told
    I'd get approximatey 70K with my moderate mitral valve
    regurgitation. After waiting 5 years in total, I was told
    my case was reviewed and I was to get about 20K because
    they thought I might have had rhematic fever once- I never
    had anything of the kind. My laywer suggested I go for a
    second review but said the second and final review would
    be binding with no appeals. SInce I have had over a dozen
    echos and been reviewed by at least 6 different
    cardiologists who have all found my echos to indicate at
    least moderate mitral valve regurgitaion, I thought I had
    nothing to lose by trying again. When the 2nd review came
    back, that cardiologist said I had mild mitral regurg! I
    just got a check for $4,800.00!!! ANd my lawyer says I
    can't appeal. I Called the trust fund but they won't speak
    to me since they are only supposed to speak to my
    attorney.There has to be some way I can fight such a
    completely different finding from all the cardiologists
    I've seen and echos I've had. Is anyone in the same boat??
    ANy suggestions? For all I know there could have been some
    kind of mistake There must be some legal recourse left for
    someone who has been dealt such a discrepancy. I'd
    appreciate any feedback anyone could give me.
