    I guess I am a little confused. How is your claim or you a fraud if the medical condition was misdiagnosed? There is no fault on your end for this. Do you still work for the same company where you were hurt? Second opinions and change in providers in different in each state. Most will allow for some time of change in provider though you may have to meet specific criteria.

    I would keep talking to different attornies until I found one that says they're screwed! I would like to think someone should be accountable. Good Luck!!

    Hello,

    In this instance it sounds like a second opinion would be the way to go. I would request a second opinion from the insurance company, although this rarely works in the injured worker's favor. My wife is a in a very similar situation, we do have one of North America's top hand surgeons wanting new tests. But Idaho State Insurance Fund is sticking with the original doctor. It comes down to needing an attorny and a doctor who will help... Your specialist should have given you a rating and set things striaght but it sounds like they are claiming a later injury in that six month sprain timeframe.
