A: You should consult with an attorney certified as a specialist in workers compensation law. The attorney can see what has been filed and determine what the situation might be. There would be no charge for an initial consultation.

A: I agree with attorney Neiman. Getting a lawyer involved can resolve a number of issues, and unless there is litigation-in which case you would need a lawyer regardless-there is no fee to you.
