We have helped thousands of injured workers get the benefits they are entitled to receive. We don’t back down to insurance companies or their lawyers. We fight tirelessly for your rights when you have suffered a workplace injury.
Why Do Injured Workers Have to Deal with Insurance Companies?
Workers’ Compensation insurance companies repeatedly refer injured workers to doctors who deal primarily with Workers’ Comp cases. These doctors rely on the insurance companies for the majority of their income and, therefore, have an obvious interest in getting injured employees back to the workplace as quickly as possible. In their haste to get people back to work, these doctors may attempt to cut corners with your care – denying requests for a visit to a specialist or sending you back to work on light duty before you feel you are well enough to return.
Insurance companies are in business to make money. It’s completely understandable that they want to limit liability and get you back to work quickly. As soon as medical treatment concludes and you are back to work, replacement pay ends as well. That being said, you shouldn’t be forced to go back to work too soon or be denied appropriate health care because of an insurance company’s bottom line. The knowledgeable attorneys at Team Law will deal with the insurance companies on your behalf. We will be on your side getting you the benefits you need to recover from your injuries.
Reasons the Insurance Company May Deny Your Workers’ Comp Claim
In some situations, insurance companies attempt to deny or minimize the benefits an injured worker receives by saying that:
- The injury did not occur while you were on the job.
- You are misrepresenting your injury.
- Your injury was due to a preexisting condition.
