Hello today I received something alarming in the mail. However before i get to that let me give you some back story.
I was injured on the job, taken off work for nearly a year by my doctors and received temporary total disability payments from workers compensation. A few months ago I had a QME scheduled. The doctor spent 10 minutes looking at me, claimed i was fine and could go back to work. Which of course was bogus. Anyway I went back to my regular doctor I was seeing who wouldn't refute the QME probably because he was a doctor listed from the workers comp company.
So I had no where to turn, and ended up quiting that job. Few weeks later I get a call from the workers comp agent wanting to settle the claim with me. I chose a compromise and release of course the price was low, but being backed into a corner of course i went with it, comp and release papers are sent to me, i sign and mail off.
Jump to today. I get a letter from the Workers Compensation Appeals Board stating I have to go to a hearing at so and so time blah blah. However the type of hearing says "status conference" and towards the end of the letter under "special comments" it says "set re: TTP status by PTP". I have no idea what any of this means, I hope someone can tell me. Should I get a lawyer at this point?
