I hired a lawyer regarding a injury at the work place, seen

Customer Question

I hired a lawyer regarding a injury at the work place, seen several doctors, for pain infusions with the end result being back surgery. I was on my last try to fight WSIB, I found my lawyer incompetent, as he wasnt prepared as I would have thought he should have been. Never in this hearing did he bring up all these doctors and medical treatments that I received, I called WSIB and they told me that I can no longer take this any further. Im totaly upset that I didnt stop the proceedings and state that my lawyer was of no help and ask that I have the opportunity to find another lawyer. Is there anything you can do.
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Also I went from a 23 dollar an hr job to 15. I wake up in pain , go to work in pain and come home in severe pain in tears. I have no choice, I need to work. I also have COPD and emphysema and I am finding it harder and harder to work due to both the chronic back pain and COPD. I do have a license for medicinal marijuana but have much difficulty vapourizing with it, I am now going to try the oil. On top of all that I am on several strong medications which I cant take while working. I live in Sarnia Ontario Please tell me you can help me
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: I have a compensation package about 3 inches thick. I was going to write a letter to compensation and request another one so a respectful lawyer who knows what he/she is doing can have a look at it. My surgeon, Dr. Chris ****** disagrees with their decision (as they are calling it degenerate disc disease due to ageism) and is and has wrote letters
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: stating that their findings are untrue. I wasapproximately 42 when this injury occured and I am 53 years old now
