This is an interesting dilemma. First, if you have not done so, contact the bar association for the state where the lawyer was practicing law and explain your need to find the lawyer. Hopefully, the bar will have his information. If he is no longer a member of the bar, contact the Worker's Compensation Commission. The Commission usually approves settlement agreements and should have a copy of your agreement. You may need another lawyer to assist you in getting the employer/insurer to pay for the surgery, but you may be able to get it done by contacting the employer/insurer directly.
