I guess the best place to start is at the beginning, My husband was injured at work in December 2001. His injury is classified as a catastrophic injury, along with various broken and fractured bones, he sustained a compression burst of the T-6 and T-11 vertebrae resulting in spinal cord damage.
In the 10 yrs. since the accident he has not spoken to an attorney due to the fact that he has not had any trouble receiving the medical care he needs, which has been fairly extensive. He has had a few "minor" skirmishes over things like help with recreational aids, ( he was an avid hunter and fisherman before his accident), but they were eventually worked out in his favor.
His main concern now is accessible housing. Although he is able to move around our home now with the aid of a forearm crutch, as he ages he will be more dependent on his power chair. (Due to the injury, his left arm and hand are completely immobile, requiring him to need a power chair.) We have been working on the housing issue aggresively for the past 5 or 6 years, with no results from the access insurance carrier. We are tired of meeting demands and jumping through hoops, to no avail.
Is there a way to reliably research workers comp attorneys practices? We are not interested in the "vulture" advertisers on television, (Attorney X got me $400.000.00 for my injury!!) etc.......
Any help is appreciated,
A Hurt Husband and Very Weary Wife
