First I would like to thank the administrators, especially Tony for providing a sounding board which helps us to fight the gaslighting tactics of the WC insurance companies.
I'll try to keep this abbreviated. I will need a third surgery for the exact same problem within two years of when the first surgery was provided. The problem is, my attorney has never once gone to court to fight for me. In fact, when I expressed my frustration via e-mail, he became very combative and yelled at me. I can never get any response from him or his receptionist until they want something. Example (Don't forget about your QME). I now get the feeling that he is going to try to strong-arm me into settling out of court in order to get the quickest settlement possible. My question is, If I switch attorneys, do I have to pay them each 15% or, Do they split it? I have read a recent review from a former client who stated that this attorney even joked with the WC carriers attorneys during the client's trial. Another expressed similar problem to the ones I am having and stated: "they wouldn't resign, but would just wait until my case was dismissed for failure to show". I've got to say, I completely believe it based on my experience. Any input or help would be valued and appreciated. Thank You
