My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: Florida
My current attorney and I are in a funk, (he has stopped responding to me) I'll explain; I feel my attorney has filed a false claim in my workers comp case. I questioned him as to why he filed a claim for an injury that I was never diagnosed with ever
He states no big deal we cold simply withdraw this at a later date, and continues to base the case on it. Recently I received documents from opposing counsel where they are stating their reasons for denying the claim, mainly because like I stated earlier, that I don't have the injury my attorney is claiming. (makes sense to me) I do have an injury in the same location same organ but just not the specific one my attorney is filing a claim for. My first Attorney (fired her) filed the same injury as well at the beginning of the case, and I unwittingly signed documents agreeing to it. with both attorneys.
Question: Is this attorney and my former attorney doing something illegal?
And can the case be lost in court based on the wrong injury filed?
Additionally is it true that I can be held personally responsible as suggested by the opposing counsel, for their fees as they claim should they prevail in court.
Last note, I am to go to court in April.
