workers comp case in California, very difficult

You should consider hiring an attorney who can pick another doctor from the insurance companies MPN.

You do not need to pay to see a specialist. You can get a referral to see one through work comp.

Hi hey thanks for your reply, I am hiring an attorney that I filled out paper work with on Monday,
I did not want to do it but I am pretty much being forced, hey I am wondering when the attorney gets a second opinion doctor from the insurance companies MPN how does that differ from the work comp doctor, aren't the doctors on the insurance companies MPN list still on the ins company side or no? I am just kinda wondering because it is a list that the insurance company provides right?

Thanks

Not all of the doctors within the MPN's are hacks, no. Most of the time after an injury they send an injured worker to a insurance company oriented industrial clinic in their MPN.

The first thing I would ask your attorney is to view your MPN and help pick a doctor for you, and change doctors ASAP. You will not need a second opinion when he does that. He can pick any doctor such as orthopedic surgeon or pain management doctor. The doctor then can refer you out to a specialist and refer you out for an MRI. If you have your MPN info for this attorney it would be helpful.

If your new doctor believes you should not be working at this time due to your injury, they can take you off of work and can place you on TTD workers compensation payments. It is around 60% of your wages, but not taxed so it should be close to your wages after taxes. You should not have needed to use your vacation time to recover from your injury. Or your doctor may increase your job restrictions to help you at work and not get re injured. That is the better case scenario is to continue to work but not let it injure you more.

Good luck to you.
I am not an attorney.Anything I write should not be considered legal advice.I am writing from my own personal experiences,which is not from any sort of legal background. You should consult with an attorney over legal issues. In California, if you cannot get an attorney you can consult with an I&A officer.
