A: This is a question you need to speak to your workers compensation attorney about. If you do not have a workers compensation attorney, you need to get one. You need an advocate that will fight to get you all of the benefits you are entitled to receive and if you are trying to do this yourself there is no question that you will leave money on the table. Workers compensation attorney fees are capped by statute, making hiring one an easy decision to make.

By the way, I am not a workers compensation attorney so I am not just trying to drum up business. It is really a good idea.

Good luck to you.

A: AMEs are ONLY for people with a lawyer, so if this doctor is truly an Agreed Medical Evaluator, YOU have a lawyer! So tell your lawyer to schedule the final re-evaluation with the AME ASAP. THAT's why you are paying your lawyer 15% of your recovery!
