Cheap lawyers of any stripe are everywhere. There have never been more underemployed or unemployed lawyers in my 25 year career. But beware. Like in life, you get what you pay for in law. Why does the best scotch cost so much? Because it is single malt and is over 20 years old. Same with lawyers. Singularly focused and aged is more expensive. But clearly worth it.
This is not proper procedure and actually violates the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) protocol on the correct administration of the Walk and Turn test. Because the test was not given properly, any results are invalidated. I am certified by NHTSA in DWI Investigation and Standardized Field Sobriety Testing just like the police and practice here in Charlotte.

However, carriers are not required here to authorize care outside of the State of jurisdiction. Better to be patient. The alternative is to file a hearing request but plan on having to travel back to State where you were originally injured. Best to you.
Would need more facts but it certainly appears you would have a claim for causally related medical bills, any lost time from work while written out of work by authorized treating physician, and perhaps, permanent partial disability if any impairment results. You should consult an experienced NC workers' compensation attorney. Best to you in your recovery.
You don't have to be honest but any claims later can be potentially denied for fraud in the application. Better to disclose rather than later be exposed. The truth will eventually come out. Momma was right. Honest is still the best policy (pun intended).
