I am declared 34% whole body impairment from a QME. MY retirement

Customer Question

I am declared 34% whole body impairment from a QME. MY retirement is through Cal Pers, my case has been turned over to their lawyers. I am being told that I need a lawyer. I am confused. If I need one, It will have to be on winning the case before I can pay. How do I do this. It was caused by a exhaust leak in my school bus.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation and hope I can help.

If you hire a workers' compensation attorney, you won't be obligated to pay the attorney unless you recover a settlement or a verdict in your favor.

Due to that reason, you should hire a workers' compensation attorney to assist you in your case.

You can hire one online through the website here:
