TBI/Stroke
#1
Hi. I'm new here. Knowledge is power for sure! My husband was injured 4/13/07 - a semi trailer fell on his head - TBI, all injuries were from neck up, carotid artery was crushed, threw clot and had stroke. Lost the entire language component, right side WAS paralyzed. They think he can work full time without restrictions!?!? He can't even read now!
WC should be responsible for your atty costs - there isn't a price on the brain just a limb...Please help -

each state has a legal appeal process whereby benefit decisions can be reviewed by a work comp court. without knowing the jurisdiction of your husband's claim I can't provide more detailed information on how he can apply.
each state has separate rules for its work comp program.
do you have a power of atty for him or has legal guardianship been granted?
most of these decisions are based on supporting medical evidence so you would need medical opinions to proceed with a dispute.
all states have post recovery benefits of either wage loss or impairment that includes brain dysfunction or head trauma.
without knowing the state i can't be more specific.

Hi and welcome to the Board here.

I don't understand your question though. As you say WC should be responsible for your atty costs? Why? You or your husband Hired the Attorney, not WC. But, if I may ask, as I would think, you do have some questions. Please ask them.

But, please supply the State the Work Comp Case is in, as this will help us, help you way better.

many workers would be suspecious as to whose side the attys were on if they were paid by the carrier
just as many workers are don't like it when the docs are paid by employer.
