You Are Not Really Fighting Your Employer
A lot of people mistakenly believe that when they are injured at work, the outcome is largely up to their employer but the reality is that you are employer does not have much to say about it. Workers compensation is paid by insurance companies, that are powerful and willing to fight.
The Insurance Companies
The goal of any insurance adjuster is to keep costs down for the insurance company and typically it is at the sacrifice of the injured employee. When you are hurt at work it is the insurance company that will try to:
- Keep you from the health care you deserve
- Reduce payments
- Push you to return to work before you are physically able
When you are injured at work, you are entitled the health care that your doctor recommends, not what the insurance company wants to pay for. Under law you are entitled to get medical care to treat your condition but the insurance companies often will fight you every step of the way or make it difficult to get the approvals to discourage you.
They will try to reduce payments to you, delay payments and make it difficult to be compensated for your injury because it is their job to cut costs.
Many people that have been injured at work have felt pressured to return to work before their doctors clear them. You need someone fighting for you and your rights, Block, Klukas, Manzella & Shell, P.C. can help!
