Stay in close contact with your workers compensation attorney

Stay in close contact with your attorney. Usually, once
a vocational rehabilitation counselor has been assigned
to your case, it is the time that the insurance adjuster
is most desperate in trying to cut off your benefits. The
insurance company does not care if they are cut off by
finding you employment or due to the appearance of a
failure to cooperate on your part. You need to let your
attorney know each and every time a job is offered, each
time that they suggest any type of vocational training,
and anything that occurs that makes you feel uneasy.
This way, the lawyer can stay on top of whether it is
suitable employment and whether it’s a legitimate job that you would interview for. Make sure you have your
attorney advise you at each stage of this complicated
process.
