    Bernard’s Answer

    Dear Broke Back Phil, There could be many reasons why this is occurring, but most likely the employer has terminated or laid you off and your insurance premiums are not be paid bc you are not working. They are also likely contesting or denying your wc claim. You need an experienced AL lawyer who handles wc claims to review your situation with you to get a full understanding of the matter. This way you rights will be protected.

  • Do I have to allow the case nurse attend my dr appt

    Work comp

    Bernard’s Answer

    No!!! Most of these nurse case managers are wolves in sheep's clothing. Typically they are hired by the insurance company needing to spy on you. Also, they can adversely influence the authorized treating physician. Not to say all of them are terrible, but you have rights. We have plenty of information at our website about these folks. Please find our Firm at Nomberglaw.com.

    Bernard’s Answer

    In Alabama, several factors determine the value of a workers' compensation claim. You typically will be placed at maximum medical improvement by your authorized treating doctor once he/she feels you have reached the end of your recovery. That event then leads to an impIrment rating and the doctor's return to work restrictions or limitations. These are the main factors, but other related issues need to be addressed as well. You really need to consult with an experienced Alabama workers' compensation lawyers to discuss the specifics. I wish you the best.
