yes, I filed a workers comp case against my employer for two major reasons. Injuries sustained for work outside my position description and for abusive behavior.
I had a deposition.
From the depo, my attorney referred to me three other attorneys, but kept my workers comp case?
Is this normal? I was refered to attorneys for defamation, employment law, and criminal allegations.
I had a AME ruling. Some injuries require further referrals to specialist for ruling, but current ones are industrial related.
What does that mean?
When I ask my attorney, she is good at sending me letters for the referrals. But when I request to meet or talk with her she is very short with me.
This is not personal. I just want to know if this is normal.
I had an interactive accomodations meeting, this week, she sent me a certified letter telling me she will not be there. She only hands the workers comp.
I am confuse. Please advise
Will the recommendation from the AME help me now with my case? I am not getting worker compensation, mileage, or gas to attend my appointments.
