Florida - Worker comp injury
#1
I got injured at work when a metal piece flew out of the wall and hit me in the head . I am suffering from severe head ache, dizziness and nausea. I have been seeing worker comp suggested clinic and is now referred to a neurologist. I have had CT done which was clear thank god. My neurologist can’t see me till 3 weeks and now my worker comp adjustor wants to settle my case. My lawyer thinks I should but they offered a small amount.I’m just concerned that my symptoms will require more treatment. I am also experiencing memory lost and reported passing out . The neurologist assigned to me is the worst neurologist in the world from what my attorney is saying. I’m so confuse would like to get some advise please .

My state is Florida
Injured 9/2018

If you don’t trust your atty you can switch and the fee is shared. Talk to a few and let them know up front your concerns and goals. If you don’t, they’ll assume you want what they want: quick cashout for as much as you can get.
use more options in the search feature to limit search to the workers compensation practice area.

You can request a second opinion or a change of physician

Thanks ! I hired one from a big law firm. I just feel like my case is still very new my symtoms are concerns are not being heard from the clinic they assigned me too. I am scheduled to see neurologist which I heard and read reviews is the worst neurologist to deal with . I still suffer from severe head ache , dizziness , nausea and memory list . Had a few episode of passing out . Would like to see a neurologist sooner but was told the doctor assigned to me is on vacation. If I Seattle my case any other treatment I get will not be covered. The settlement offer will basically just cover one to two treatment. I trust my lawyer. But I don’t think it’s in my best interest to settle when I haven’t even seen a specialist.
