    Default Have First Attorney Meeting Tomorrow

    My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: PA
    Having consult with attorney tomorrow. He wants to send a letter to insurance company to have case nurse removed from our case. Is this standard procedure? Should we agree? He thinks we should go after a settlement because the insurance company is going to request a functional capability test in April and then vocational counselor. He said they can reduce his weekly earnings if they can list on paper 5-10 jobs in our area that are within his restrictions (sedentary duty) whether he can get them or not. Very scary! Any advise? He has been on TTD for one year. We are struggling now to pay our mortgage. We would have to sell or foreclose if they cut his wages back and he can't find another job. He had an IME 3 weeks ago and that Dr. agreed with his Dr. concerning only sedentary duty and both agree he will need future surgery on his foot.

    If you did your homework and hired a competent and aggressive workers' comp attorney, then listen to what he tells you and make your decisions accordingly. Here on the forum we are in no position to second-guess the advice your lawyer is giving you. Again, this assumes you did your homework when choosing your lawyer. Good luck.
    The North Carolina Court of Appeals has held that "In contested Workers' Compensation cases today, access to competent legal counsel is a virtual necessity." Church v. Baxter Travenol Labs, Inc., and American Motorists Insurance Company, 104 N.C. App. 411, 416 (1991).
