Can I request a different vocational rehabilitation specialist?

Workers’ compensation Can be complicated and scary for injured workers and you are not always going to like what the experts tell you. Voc rehab is especially tricky and I wrote an article about its pitfalls a few years ago.
The more effort and commitment you put into it, the better your result is likely to be. Share your concerns with your attorney and listen to your lawyer’s answers with an open mind.
Have a sit down with your attorney so he can explain things to you. You have no right to a job that pays the the same or more than your previous job. You cannot choose anther voc rehab person. But you can choose another attorney if you are still unsatisfied after the "sit down" . You need to understand the "your best interest" is not necessarily in-line with Workers' Compensation law.
