My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: California
Good Saturday Morning! I've posted here before. Here's a quick rundown of case.
My injuries that I suffered on the job were so bad that I was retired. For the last year no treatment on lower back area. Doctors can see the injuries on MRI and xray. Comp. denies all treatment. I had a MRI done in 2008 shown a tore disc but, didn't find out until January of this year. This was left out of report. After countless appeals I received another MRI this year. Still have the torn disc and a budge disc. Attorney did nothing to help me receive medical help. There office was the worst. I couldn't of picked a worst one if I tried. Next I fired Attorney in April 2011 and last week I had to go pick up file at his office. I also asked for that in April.
Today I receive a lien from Attorney. I assume that's just in case I'm award anymore settlement for the recent discovery of injuries. After firing the attorney I talked with my adjustor. He made appointment for me to see the same QME which I go see in a week or two. I would of been ok with my attorney doing that for me. One year later and no treatment. I can barely get out of bed each day.
My attorney deserves nothing more. I tried to get another attorney but, the damage is done, the reports are in. One attorney said I may have a Malpractice case.
So can I file something to stop this with the Courts and have the Judge decide? This attorney is on probation right now. My attorney office put me through so much stress that it's a relieve not to deal with them.
Right now I have no more coming as far as settlement. QME with all the new Doctors reports in front of him may deny me. Nothing surprises me anymore. I'm trying to go on and have a life. The pain gets to me some days more than others but, always in pain. His office staff was abusive to me and I let the Attorney know. No return call. I have all the emails and threatened letters I received. I'm easygoing personality. I didn't know what the attorney was suppose to do for me. I thought my Doctors do all the fighting for treatment. Which they did but there comes a point when the Attorney needed to step in and help. So far my attorney has $200.00 coming from my case which he knew the percentage wasn't right and that was in November of last year. Never helped me at any point either. I received no help from Attorney period except put my two cases into one. Thats it! I went the extra mile to make sure Attorney had all appeals from Doctors offices.
Please someone let me know if I can dispute his lien?? Thank you
