Your new attorney will have to share fees with the old one. So, this may make it difficult to find a new attorney. Also, worker's compensation attorneys are very busy since they are high volume firms. Typically, they are not able to give alot of personal attention to each and every case. So, your case may be progressing as usual but you just do not know it. You can ask for an appointment with the attorney to find out the status and progress on your case. Plus I have added Worker's Comp to your tags. Good luck.
