Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
The first thing you need to understand is workers compensation
insurers do not want to ever pay disability if they can avoid it. As such they do whatever they can, including sending workers to quack doctors for second opinions who never read the file or even examine the worker and come up with whatever opinion the insurer wants them to give.
The first thing you need to do is if you do not have a workers compensation attorney, you really should get one, because you are going to have to file a workers compensation suit. You are going to need to do this to demand another opinion from an independent medical expert.
Second, the most common thing that happens in these cases is that the workers compensation court will go by the examination of the doctor who has actually been treating you, not the quack who never examined you and did not read the file, but unfortunately they force you to file suit to win these cases, but this is how these insurers play this game.
Your case is going to rely heavily on your TREATING doctor's reports and testimony. Thus you need to get to your treating doctor and begin working with them to get the medical records on your case together to prove that you are disabled and unable to perform your work because of your work related injury.
