Hi, I have a IME appointment for my T4-T10 fusion. Of course my workers comp want me off the books. I do know they work for the insurance company and they favor them. But my question is do you or should someone have a lawyer for this. I dont see the doctor saying I am fine? But he can say whatever he wants to the insurance company. I am 5 months post op. A carpenter that does heavy work. At 50 years old, I feel like I can be be screwed for ever. My body is no way ready for work at this time. Should someone come with me? Plus WC lawyers are all 20% here in PA .
