Confused and need suggestions
Sorry guys, may be a little long. Slip and fall on ice Jan. 2012- allowed conditions to date: lateral and medial meniscal tears of left knee, popliteal synovial cyst, Substantial Aggravation of pre-existing knee osteoarthritis (caused allograft to fail), contusion left shoulder, impingement syndrome left shoulder, superior glenoid labrum lesion left shoulder. Now as for treatment to date: Meniscectomy May 2012 of left knee (continue to have problems), unloader brace for walking/working for left knee, cortisone injections left shoulder x4. I have been trying to put off any other surgery especially of the shoulder but it looks inevitable! Can't lay on that shoulder, can raise it up, can reach behind, my knee hurts ALL the time, waking me at night, pops and cracks constantly and now just found out I have a pinched nerve in my back due to a bulging disc with nerve damage in lower legs (EMG already done). Now, I moved to FL and drive 4 hours each way to a MD for the knee and shoulder. Transferring care of the knee to a MD who does replacements since this MD says that is what I need but he doesn't do them. He will continue to tx my shoulder and if therapy does not help (never has before only makes it worse) then it's off to surgery. BWC is asking the IC to deny my TTD (restrictions no bending, twisting, or lifting >5lbs). Their MD says send referral to Voc Rehab that as a nurse I can do other things. I've only ever been a floor nurse in a hospital so don't know how he figures that.

Anyways, need suggestions for attorneys. I really don't like them because everyone I have ever had for anything has screwed up or been dishonest.
