- Q. Waiting for my appointment with the workman's comp doctor it is not for 6 months can they do that legally.
- A: It depends what the issue is. If this is an Agreed Medical Evaluator, sometimes the wait can be 6 months. in the meantime, however, you should be able to follow up with your treating physician if your injuries are getting worse. If the issue is a denial of the injuries, then you should be able to get a QME Panel from the State and those examinations are required to be set within 60 days. If this is not possible, then a replacement Panel can be requested.
- Q. Can I add my previous work related injury to my other work related injury workers comp case?
- A: Since you did report the injury at the time of the fall, the employer should have provided you the claim form and process your injury claim. We could try to add the injury claim with your back claim, and the settlement appears low when you report that you have two herniated discs. If surgery is indicated, then the settlement does not appear to be appropriate. Louie Putters, Esq. SF BAY AREA LAW (415) 730-9100
