THE POTENTIAL STRESS OF WORKERS’ COMPENSATION
There is no doubt it is a stressful time when you have been injured due to a work injury. Insurance companies are not in the business of handing out the compensation you deserve, even some doctors might write medical reports that inaccurately describe the physical state you may be in, forms may be improperly filed, or your employer may “controvert” your claim. There are many things that can hurt you and go wrong in a worker’s compensation claim, and they can adversely effect your ability to care or provide for you or your family. It is important if you have been injured on the job to speak with an experienced firm with a proven track record.
COMMON INSURANCE ADJUSTER TACTICS
If an insurance company or employer is trying to persuade you against seeking representation for your workers compensation claim, then you should see a red flag for exactly why you need to speak with experienced workers’ compensation attorneys. There are two common tactics used by insurance companies:
One tactic commonly used by an insurance adjuster is to try and act like your best friend, and persuade you that they are just there to help you. This could not be farther from the truth, because that insurance adjuster’s job is to minimize how much the insurance company pays you.
Another tactic commonly used by an insurance adjuster is to attempt to bully or intimidate you into going along with what they say. This should raise a red flag with you as well, because you should never feel pressured into making decisions. Chances are, if you allow yourself to be intimidated or bullied into making decisions, then those decisions will only hurt your claim.
