For both families and workers, a serious workplace accident can do more than just physical harm. Instead of focusing on your recovery, you may become distracted with feelings of frustration, anxiety, and uncertainty about the future. Who will provide for your loved ones? How are you going to pay your bills? What are your options? It can be extremely overwhelming to be thrown into a process so unfamiliar without any support while you’re trying to recover.
If you are injured on the job, workers’ compensation benefits can help cover part of the expenses of medical treatment and lost wages. However, getting the benefits that you are entitled to is not a simple task. The insurance company will look for any possible way to destroy your ability to have a legitimate case. Not to mention a simple mistake could jeopardize your claim, and you may lose your right to compensation.
Insurance Companies Take Advantage of Injured, Desperate Workers.
Once your employer’s insurance provider discovers you were injured at work, a claims adjuster will be assigned to your case before you even get a chance to start on the road to recovery. But beware, the insurance adjuster is employed by the insurance company, not by you. This means you can’t count on them to have you and your family’s best interests in mind. Chances are, they’re going to treat you as just another number in their system. Workers’ compensation adjusters have their own set of methods for investigating, defending, negotiating, and settling cases. It may feel as though no one is on your side and the insurance company is looking to catch you in a lie. At Henson Fuerst, we believe in our clients. We’re on your side.
