If I drop my atty do I continue to see the doctors that he set me up with? - alagada1 - 11-14-2010

The WC attorney is the one who sent me to the current primary treating physician. I also see a chiropractor that the treating physician referred me to for therapy. If I dismiss the attorney from my case, do I still see these doctors. Also, since I am unsure of wanting to continue to pursue this wc case or just drop it, if I do drop it, what happens to these doctors that I am currently seeing. Do they give me some kind of status of a release in treating me since they wont no longer be paid by workers comp?

you may have to pay yourself.....to see them...I am unsure you may want to have a sit down with your lawyer and tell him what you want he works for you after all

if you dismiss your atty you still have a claim and all remains the same except who is representing you.
if you drop your claim and you still want treatment you'll have to pay yourself.

I agree with 1171.
