Here lies the problem with work comp.
First off the playing field is not level.
Second they have all the money and you don't.
Third it is just fine and dandy for them to lie but you don't.
Fourth their defense attorney has all the time to review the case and get his ducks in order, yours don't.
Fifth, your attorney is swamped dealing in mass volume. Your case is not with its ducks in order and often your attorney is just trying to "wing it".
Sixth, you must stay on top of your own case. This is difficult to do since you really don't know the legal system well enough.
Seventh it is fine and dandy for their IME to write any lie he wishes. You can not even defend yourself from the lies of charactor of which are thrown in to boot.
Eighth, they can film you doing anything and use it against you. Only, they cut out the portions which may be in your favor.
Lastly, you hope and pray to get a judge who can look at this thing from the right direction and sort it out. But your attorney is often not with their ducks really in order. I have seen this applicant attorney problem many times. The system is stacked against the applicant since their attorney doesn't have the time to really study the case.
Sad situation this really is. So much for the injured worker. I can understand why some get into trouble contributing the lies. It is important to be able to disprove their end.
Why is it that all this stuff is allowed to happen? The answer is money of course. It is not at all a game of what is right. We are lost in just believing that. You too will be bucked off the system when the time is right. So much to receiving the medical care you need in a timely manner. It is all about discouraging you and starving you out.
