    Short answer - Yes and immediately. Sounds like you should have been paid workers comp benefits but instead you used unpaid time off / FMLA. Something went very wrong with your claim. Call a lawyer.

    If you had a good experience with your previous attorney, there is nothing wrong with hiring him or her again. This attorney will already be up to speed with your history. As for the chiropractor, he or she is also up to speed with your history. There is no serious disadvantage with changing lawyers or chiropractors. This case will turn on what harm the at fault driver(s) caused and nothing else. Also, make sure the chiropractor you do choose will readily refer you to specialists should...

    The answers you've received are excellent ones. There are two possibilities: one has been mentioned and that is finding your own MD to perform an IME (a knowledgeable workers comp attorney can help you make a sound choice). The timing of the IME is crucial - get legal advice here. Another option to consider is making a one time change in physicians but I would not recommend you do this without consulting an experienced workers comp attorney. Good luck.

    It sounds to me like your employer is already screwing you over -- talk to a workers comp lawyer immediately and as advised above don't quit your job and do nothing that would give your employer a valid reason to fire you.

    AVVO has several qualified lawyers that can help. The facts you outline may give rise to two potential actions - workers' compensation and personal injury. Firms like mine routinely handle both the workers' comp and personal injury side of the case and you should have no trouble finding a qualified attorney to help you.

    In such a case, the client is usually responsible for the attorney fee and the costs of the case. Typically, the fee is taken from the gross recovery and then costs come off of the client's portion.

    Based on what you've stated, it is not possible to answer your question with any certainty. You probably cannot re-open the case. Call an attorney and discuss the details to get the answer you are looking for.

    Agree with the answers already given and would add that the degree of the tears or damage will usually dictate the type of surgery recommended - arthroscopic vs. an open procedure. These procedures will have different periods of recovery (typically shorter vs. longer). If your current doctor is not clearing you for the work that you normally do, its not likely that another workers' comp doctor would either -- this means your job/employment status will continue to be impacted. My advice -...
