I am having a lot of difficulty with my attorney and my WC case. He is harming my case and I need advice please.

Asked about 1 year ago - Riverside, CA

Back in February I had a QME evaluation. It was a Psyche QME and as you know they can withhold this report from the client which is fine. This Psyche place me on TD. Being I couldn't see this report I had no idea. Hurting for money I was advised to look for work by my attorney up until April when I got a letter regarding an expedited hearing to get my TD. He told me he completely missed it on the report, and apologized. I figured it happens and let it go. But here is my issue.

We are at court and he give me no info only to expect a check in 7 days. No paperwork or anything.. Well it's been a month, and nobody will tell me what is going on. I get ridiculed for calling, and asking why nobody is getting my TD Benefits. I am being ignored by both parties and I don't know what to do or can do

    Answered . You should never be ridiculed when you call your attorney's office with questions about the status of TD benefit payments. You have the right to change attorneys if you feel that your communications with your attorney have broken down. Contact you local attorney bar association for a referral to a certified specialist in workers' compensation. Attorney Greg Espinoza (951) 682-4004 may be able to help you in Riverside County. Good Luck.
