all Personal injury attorney accept WC cases on a contingency basis, yes you can sue them

You can sue, but your chances are slim. By your own statement, you didn't keep your appointment - the reason doesn't matter. YOU should have followed up about it. And the fact that you didn't understand the WC process won't matter, either.

You're going to sue the insurance company? Sure you can - but your chances of winning are very slim. Whatever you read, about neglect and workers comp, I've never heard that. There's "bad faith", but that's not neglect. Bad faith, is when you have a valid claim, and they keep refusing to pay it. Your state laws determine which doctors you can and cannot see. Some of them require you to go to a panel doctor, for the first 30/60/90 days. All of them require you to go for independent exams at the insurers request. Workers comp adjusters are high turnover. They can't help it, if their adjusters quit. They have NO control over that. Typically, when you have a wage loss claim, there is a wait before it kicks in. It can be as short as 3 days, if you're in Hawaii, or as long as three weeks, in several states. That's, three BUSINESS weeks. So they don't start paying, until your waiting period is over. If you're well enough to be in college full full time, then you are usually well enough for SOME type of work, even if it's not what you were doing when you were injured. If you want to hire a lawyer, and pay $200 an hour to try to sue them, go for it. Here in the USA, you can sue anyone for anything. But half this mess is YOUR fault - for "forgetting" the appointment, treating on your own, etc.
