I have a request for a designated doctor examination tomorrow concerning a worker compensation claim
on a knee injury that required major surgery back in February this year.
The purpose of this exam is to determine my
maximum medical improvement
and impairment rating.
Should I have counsel?

At least call DWC for help from an ombudsman..but yes counsel could help in the future...but now be sure the doctor has all your medical records and you tell him/her clearly how you hurt yourself and what injuries you suffered..and if they have become worse or expanded to other parts of your body be clear in your explanation....call me or call DWC for names of other lawyers who could help now
