    Yes I believe that you are always better off hiring an attorney who specializes in the particular area of law that your case or issue involves. Every area of the law, like medicine has specialties and even sub specialties with them. For a personal injury case I would advise that you hire someone who specializes in same.

    You cannot sue the carrier directly. The amount you receive from compensation for the injury and or disability is a function of your average weekly wage for the year prior to the injury. You may be able to also pursue social security disability if you have enough quarters in prior to your disability. So if you worked on the books for five PI of the past ten years you have enough quarters in to receive social security disability.

    So long a the entire settlement is characterized as pain and suffering there is no tax consequence to you. If any portion is labeled lost income then it will be. Be sure to speak to you attorneys about your workers compensation claim and social security disability claims as well. Also if you were a union plumber you may be entitled to a disability pension from your union. But at the end of the case if its worded correctly you will never owe taxes on it.
