Q. if you get injured at work and off on workers comp can you still sue for you injuries
A: If you are injured at work, your only remedy against your employer or a coworker would be through workers' compensation. If you are a sub-contractor, or if your employer does not have workers' compensation insurance, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim against them directly. Similarly, if there is a party other than your employer or a coworker who was negligent causing your injury, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim against them. I would strongly suggest that you contact a local workers' compensation attorney to discuss your options.
Q. Hi I have a Work Comp case currently the questions I have, what do you do when you haven't talk to your attorney
A: Call them up and demand a meeting. If they refuse, you have a right to take your file and go to another firm. The claim is yours, not the attorney's.
Q. C & R does not state anywhere the defense has paid Medicare over 30,000 in medical. how can I push to include on pag 1
A: I believe I responded to you before. It is up to you. You can sign the agreement and take the risk in regard to the medical issues, or you can try to renegotiate the terms. If unable to renegotiate the terms, you can move forward to decision and take the risk that you will lose. I would suggest that you talk with your lawyer about your concerns. If you do not trust your lawyer, you can replace him/her.
