My work compensation claim was accepted for benefits. However, why is it that the insurance lawyer want to take my deposition when worker compensation claim was accepted for benefit. I also received notice of representation filed with workers compensation appeals board and it says "ADJ Unassigned". What does this mean.
1 Answer from Attorneys
The attorney defending the case may have several reasons he wants to take your deposition.
You are entitled to have an attorney represent you at the deposition at no cost to you. The insurance company has to pay the attorney to consult with you to prepare you for your deposition and to attend the deposition to protect your rights.
That attorney can consult with you and after talking with you can help you be prepared for whatever reason the defense attorney may be taking your deposition.
