Writer is connected with workers compensation firm, and case is accepted, but affiliated personal injury firm says need additional information before they take case. Writer forwarded previous medical history of spinal fusion, and medical information from current WC case from rear ended from multiple vehicles: delivery truck and car. Regarding ongoing medical care already started: EMG, Cervical and Lumbar MRI did show moderate changes and new injuries to neck and post spinal fusion injury. I have not heard a response, Left messages for firm to schedule a date to meet with someone from firm. Should I inquire issue in 2 weeks after finding out meeting from spinal surgeon to determine next level of care or speak to WC firm for feedback
In my view, you have a 3rd party case that is viable . It is a matter of how much it's worth taking into account your prior history. You should consider reaching out to other potential counsel to help you with your 3rd party case. I would be glad to speak with you about your case and I am confident many others would do so as well. It is up to you as to how to proceed, but it cannot hurt to speak with someone else. Good luck
As others have stated, it certainly sounds like you have a viable third-party cause of action, in addition to your Workers Compensation Claim. I would notify your current Attorneys and advise that you have not heard from the firm that they have referred you to. Request that they either assist you in securing appointment with the original personal injury firm that they referred you to, and/or request that they refer you to another firm. If still not satisfied, you may seek counsel elsewhere.
Sounds like you've been through a lot already. If you do not hear back soon, I would suggest finding other counsel to handle your matter. From your description it sounds like you have a WC case and potentially a 3rd party case against the other driver. You should have someone discuss your rights with you as soon as you can.
Best of luck to you.
