  • If you have good info that your WC Lawyer is throwing your case on purpose, how do you change Lawyers without getting in trouble

    I have very good intel that my Lawyer is throwing the case and working with the company. I'm afraid if I fire them I will find myself in a world of trouble. how do I get out of this mess?

    Ryan’s Answer

    I've done workers comp for 15 years. First 10 was representing companies and insurance companies. Since then I've represented injured workers. In all my time I've never seen a claimant lawyer throw a case...why would they? They get paid based upon what they recover. The more the better for you and him/her.

    There are some I used to see that would work the case harder than others.

    Now that being said, I've been wrong before.

    So if you have concerns, I'd bring them up to the lawyer and see if you can address. They may be able to explain whatever your concerns are...

    I was injured at work while performing my duties. The incident happen on September 28,2015 and I was immediately taken out of work by the doctors. After a MRI, I was explained by a neurologist, Dr. Drye, that the joint between the 4th and 5th l...

    Ryan’s Answer

    That is really a personal question. I think the right lawyer can really provide a benefit in handling a claim. Many people like that they have someone one on their side that knows the law and can guide the injured worker through all things related to a comp claim. Most lawyers, if not all, in workers compensation cases work on a contingency fee so if you don't recover money then you don't owe them a fee AND they offer free consultations so why not at least go meet with one?

    Ryan’s Answer

    Not if the form becomes accepted and/or timely. If that happens then it becomes harmless error (if there was an error). That's the best way for everyone.
