A: we handle a large volume of SIBTF cases. unfortunately to answer that question would take an entire seminar of between 10 to 30 hours of instruction. SIBTF is great and very valuable but very complicated. you will need to have SIF doctors most likley in multiple specialties to address and issues and review your life time medical records. you should consult an attorney who has alot of experience with SIBTF cases.
Assuming you have completed all the evaluations and have served them on the SIBTF, you simply need to send them a letter with your demand. It's not that complex. However, getting the case ready for a hearing is, and note the SIBTF will not respond to a demand unless the case is ready. This means you must have all the credit issues outlined, all the relevant documents served, all the releases have been signed, and you must justify your demand with hard numbers. It might be time to seek representation.
