Re: I Received My Wcc Initial Award but Do Not Understand It
That's not true, I thought his case was going smooth to begin with because he said:
I think that because wayn failed to state that his injury occurred a year ago
, you think his case is going smoothly.
"I was hurt at work and it was not contested but I received an award that that stated in the top right :compensation deferred and average weekly wage award.
It says I was hurt in the course of employment and my average weekly claim which is over 3k a week is held up "
As this thread progressed he's adding and changing facts with each response - now he's saying his case is a train wreck - I now have no opinion, I'm totally confused.
So what happens when you're not happy with the second one?
Here is my input.
Get a lawyer JUST so that the other side will think twice before screwing you. BUT you be your own advocate.
The moment the lawyer creates problem for you, in my case, he wants more PD out of non existent injury form concussion, dump him and get another one. Yes, it is not that difficult to get a second one.
I can tell you right now, no lawyer will take a case after a claimant fired two lawyers previously on top of the fact comp cases aren't that lucrative - most lawyers won't take a case where they have to split fees.
I have no idea of where you think it's not that difficult to find a lawyer - that hasn't been the experience of the members who've been complaining for years they can't find a lawyer even initially, let alone a second or third time.
