    Style ,ability, intelligence, reputation and past success all play a part in getting the best settlement or verdict. Location of the lawyer may or may not have an impact in a Jones Act case. This is because the claim may be brought in Federal or State court. Some areas of the country are more favorable than others. If it is a Longshore case then a good lawyer in the area where suit must be brought may be a better choice. Use your gut if they appear to be equally talented.

    The terms you are using don't normally apply to a personal injury case. In the worker's compensation court it is an " Application for review or Modification of a prior Award" This is a proceeding to either have your award incresed if you have gotten worse or to stop benefits if the employer has evidence that you may have improved or commited a fraud.

    Unfortunatly being at work does not make a purely personal task work related. You are not entitled to Workers Compensation.

    Changing attorneys is generally not the answer if overall you are satisfied with his or her performance. The fact that you are treating with an anesthesiologist leads me to conclude that the orthopedic doctors who saw you had nothing further offer. An anesthesiologist generally performs injections and other pain management treatments. I would suggest that you call the attorney and speak with him directly.

    It is very difficult to get. I have only filed 2 or 3 in 25 years. You need to be starting a business, buying a car to get to work,or using the money for a house etc. The Judges require very detailed papers and facts not just mere statements. The statute is below. 34:15-25. Commutation of award. Compensation may be commuted by the bureau at its present value, when discounted at five per centum (5%) simple interest, upon application of either party, with due notice to the other, if it appears...

  6. Must I allow a paid worker's comp nurse to be in the examining room with me?

    The easy answer is that the nurse has no right to be in the exam room if you do not want them there. The long answer is that if the carrier wants to assign a nurse, either you have a complicated injury or treatment protocall. I that case it may be helpful. Just remember they are there for the carrier and not you. They can be very heplful to a point but they are not your friend.

    It should have no bearing on the final outcome of your Compensation claim. Social Security and Workers Compensation have different standards to qualify. SSI is needs based and SSD is disability based. You can still be disabled for workers compensation but not be Totally disabled for purposes of SSD. If you do qualify for SSD it is just one additional factor to consider when trying to resolve your state Worker’s Compensation claim. You are best advised to consult a local attorney to help you...

    Unfortunately they may do so. However if this treatment is denied most judges or ombudsman will frown upon the treating physician being overruled based on a paper review.
