Q. If some1 is screamin at u & acting like they r gonna hit if u warn them if they hit u u will hit back a threat
A: You have an excellent question and one that could certainly be open to a case for wrongful termination, but you will need to speak with someone who handles employment law. (Worker's Compensation only deals with workplace injuries.) Use Justia's "Find a Lawyer" tab and search for someone in your area who handles employment law and let them give you some guidance.
Q. is there a logically explanation why my worker comp attorney failed to request obtain or utilize my medical records
A: I'm sorry, but I can't answer your question. Generally speaking, all medical records should come forward. I have no idea why your existing attorney didn't get your records for you. Two possibilities come to mind, but they are just off the cuff guesses. One is that the insurance company subpoenaed your records themselves and getting them again would have been duplicative. Another is that they simply weren't useful, or else included information that may have been damaging your case. As for the affidavits, without knowing more about your situation, I really can't say. Assuming your attorney knew about them and what they said, my guess is that they just weren't helpful. ... Read More
Q. In massachusetts workman's compensation cases , how vital is collection of medical records?
A: Medical records are EVERYTHING in a workers' comp case! They provide nearly all the confirmation that an event occurred that caused an injury, the proposed course of treatment, and the expected outcome of that treatment. With that information, both the Dept. of Industrial Accidents (the Workers' Comp. Board in Massachusetts), the insurance carriers and the attorneys can figure out what your diagnosis, whether you are disabled (and to what extent), and whether it was related to your work.

"Independent" doctors hired by the insurance companies attempt to answer many of these questions. I put "independent" in quotes though because they are not truly independent. They are typically hired by the insurance companies to help figure out their liability. They tend to be very conservative and, unsurprisingly, tend to favor the insurance. However, their exams are mandatory. If you fail to appear, then your claim can be closed. On the plaintiff's (injured workers') side of the equation, we see them as red flag warnings. If you haven't already done so, you should probably speak to a lawyer as it means the insurance is looking for a way to get out of liability.

Hope that helps!
