I would highly recommend that you get an attorney. If you end up in court, you will not be familiar with the procedures. Your case will probably be scheduled for April but it might get postponed. Again, I would encourage you to find a lawyer.
There are many attorneys who now represent injured workers that used to work for either insurance companies or law firms that represent insurance companies. I think the better procedure would have been to reveal this information at the beginning of the representation. You can always change attorneys if you are dissatisfied with your lawyers representation.
Your medical care will continue. Your resignation could impact your eligibility for lost wage benefits. We recommend that our clients never resign their jobs after amnon the job injury as it can cause problems with their case.
If a claim has been fired, the State Board already knows that you have no insurance. I would recommend calling the State Board to figure out the status of your case. Also, your case is not over just because the attorney withdrew. Another attorney could pick up the case.
Unfortunately, if you cannot get money from your employer to pay the bill, you are ultimately going to be responsible for the bill. The hospital will say that you received the services. Make sure to include the bill when seeking damages from your employer. This is one of many big problems that arise when employers do not have workers' compensation insurance.
I do not think the nurse is helping the adjuster make decisions regarding the value of the case, but the nurse is helping with assessment of medical care, coordination of medical care among the different medical providers and costs of medical care. It sounds as though the nurse if reviewing your files but is not attending appointments with you. You do not have to agree to that. It is your choice.
You can definitely move. The only concern will be that it is often difficult to find an out of state doctor who is willing to be paid under the Georgia WC fee schedule. I would suggest talking to your attorney regarding out of state medical options.
