    You can always change attorneys. Your new attorney and current attorney would split the 25% fee. Just be aware that there is no guarantee that your new attorney could get any more money.

    It should not have an affect on your case as long as you are taking prescribed doses. I would ask your authorized doctor to prescribe them. Good luck.

    Unfortunately, many lawyers do not want to take on cases that involve uninsured employers. It is hard to collect the money and, for the lawyers, they cannot get paid unless they collect. it is going to be hard to get someone to take the case under those conditions. I am sorry.

    If you had a hands down case, the insurance company would have already accepted your case. You are playing a game for which you do not know the rules. Hire an attorney. It's worth the fee.

    That is incorrect. A claim must be filed within one year from the date of the injury, so you are definitely within the time period. You may even have more time to file a claim because you have received authorized medical care. I would encourage you to immediately obtain legal counsel. We are 404-523-6100 if you want to discuss this matter further.

    You will need to find an attorney who is willing to proceed against an uninsured company. The lawyer will need to get an Award against the company, then take that award to the Superior Court in the county in which the company is located and convert that to a Judgment. The lawyer will then need to try to collect on that judgment. It is a time consuming process. Additionally, I would encourage you to contact the Fraud Unit of the State Board of Workers' Compensation. They can fine your...

    I would highly recommend that you contact an attorney who represents employers and insurers in workers' compensation cases. Even though you would have to pay an hourly rate for the attorney, you are now in the workers' compensation system. You will need someone to help guide you through the process and minimize your losses.

    You need to be out of work for seven days. You can then recover two-thirds of your average weekly wage up to $525/wk. If you return on a part time basis, you can get two-thirds of the difference up to $350/wk. You will also be eligible for benefits for your disability rating, which you will receive once your doctor says that you are as good as you are going to get. Our website, www.longandholder.com, has a lot of basic information that should be of help to you. Good luck. Tom Holder 404-...

    I think that you have an Oklahoma workers' compensation case. Oklahoma WC law is significantly different than the law in Georgia, so I would recommend that you contact an Oklahoma attorney. Good luck.
