Ohio. Same story new question on OAC
if the house counsel for the BWC is not knowledgeable then it does leave your son in a difficult situation as far as representation.
in that case it might be important for him to retain an atty that is stubborn and willing to litigate.
because comp atty fees are generally lower it may be difficult to find someone to work on the case for an extended period. in the end, the practical solution may be to accept a settlement.
a possible resource in finding an atty may be the state bar.
they may have a committee for work comp law and talking to someone from the committee as possible attys could be helpful.
they also have a community forum that might provide additonal information

another source might be a local law school. while workers comp is very small specialty and doesn't get much attention they may have someone who can direct you to other legal resources.
and there is always your local legislator. they have staff that may be able to find you a knowledgeable resource.

it's hard to believe there haven't been more work injuries to minors. many hotels and restaurants are unionized. you would think the union attys handling cases for busboys and dishwashers, etc. would be familitar with the labor and comp laws for minors.
Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
