Revealing What the Adjuster Might Not Tell You About Your Workers’ Compensation Claim
I am an experienced lawyer who focuses exclusively on representing injured workers and accident victims. My extensive background has provided me with a clear understanding of the insurance industry. I am committed to addressing any details the insurance adjuster may not tell you about your workers’ compensation claim, including:
- You can select a doctor to review your medical condition: Insurance companies will encourage you to be evaluated by one of their in-the-network doctors. Fortunately, you have the legal right to select two doctors to review your medical condition and determine the severity of your injuries. I will encourage you to obtain an evaluation from a private doctor, since in-the-network doctors are known to protect insurance companies.
- Workers’ compensation is based on standard calculations: Insurance companies are known to avoid explaining how weekly wages for workers’ compensation are calculated. In fact, the calculations are based on standard formulas. For example, temporary total disability benefits are calculated by determining the amount of wages you earned 52 weeks before the accident occurred. I will guide you through the legal process, making sure no calculation errors were made.
- Your employer is expected to provide appropriate accommodations: You are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits if your employer has failed to make appropriate work accommodations based on your doctor’s recommendations.
- You may be entitled to a lump-sum settlement: After a doctor determines you have reached the maximum level of improvement, you may be entitled to a lump-sum award for a permanent partial disability.
Every month for the past two decades, I take about three or four workers’ compensation claims to trial. I am an experienced attorney prepared to outline what the adjuster might not tell you about your workers’ compensation claim.
