Q: Can you please refer me to a couple of good work comp attorneys in Ontario Californiaj
Wow that's alot of stuff I know nothing about. I'd rather just get an attorney and let them handle it I don't think I have to do anything because I got hurt at work they should be sending me work on paperwork to fill out not three packets of disability excetera. So how am I supposed to get paid your it's been over 50 days and I haven't received nothing my bills are way behind car registration everything. Could you please refer me to someone maybe or throw couple things out there
A: I think I answered you earlier, but we will try again. You get paid when a doctor on the Medical Provider Network for that insurance company examines you and writes that you are Temporarily Totally Disabled OR that you are Partially Disabled but your employer cannot provide modified duty. If you let 50 days go without a medical report indicating you cannot work, you may not be paid for those 50 days. So you want to choose a Treating PHysician from the MPN Immediately. AND get in to see him/her immediately; until that report comes out the adjuster has no reason to pay you. You can look for attorneys here on Justia or try Avvo or the San Bernardino County Bar Association. California Applicants' Attorneys Association - CAAA - is another place. Just don't pick the "TV" people...
