Berwick, PA asked in Workers' Compensation for Pennsylvania

Q: Can I sue my Workman's comp attorney?

Case settled in 2016 I received a medical bill which was incurred while on workman comp I notified my attorney. It has been 3 months since I notified my attorney he keeps saying his paralegal is going to take care of it. In the meantime I have been sent to collections. It seems to me he is just blowing me off because he has already been paid. Do I have any recourse? I don't feel I should have to pay the bill.

A: I am sorry to hear about the problems that you are having with your Attorney, however, I do not believe that this situation require such drastic action as filing a Lawsuit against your Attorney.

It is my recommendation that you continue to contact your Attorney regarding this outstanding medical bill, and further, advise the Collection Agency that this matter was resolved, is the responsibility of the Workers Compensation Carrier, and provide information including, but not limited to the identity of your Attorney, the Workers Compensation Carrier, and the Judge's Decision.
