* Workers can
request evaluation by a qualified medical evaluator (QME). A QME is a physician that has met
additional requirements through education, examination and licensing. When disagreements arise about
treating a physician's medical evaluations, the worker's attorney and a claims administrator can
agree on using a particular QME for a different evaluation. A new medical report may resolve the
difference of opinion about deserved benefits.
* Attorneys can file an Application
for Adjudication of Claim, which allows the worker to have a hearing with a judge. At the hearing,
the employee's attorney presents the client’s side of the case and the judge also listens to
opposing counsel's arguments. If both sides cannot reach a settlement, then the judge schedules the
case for trial before a different judge to rule on the case.
* If the trial ruling is still
unacceptable, the worker's attorney can file an appeal, called a Petition for Reconsideration.
When an attorney discovers that an employer’s negligence caused the
worker’s injury, pursuing a lawsuit may offer a greater advantage than a workers’
compensation claim — and provide more compensation through an injury lawsuit. An experienced
workers’ compensation lawyer can evaluate the case and advise the best course of action.
