A Strong Advocate To Fight Denied Workers’ Compensation Claims
The workers’ compensation system is designed to help workers get more immediate benefits than they would by going through a lawsuit after suffering a work injury. The system is also designed to help protect employers from the costs of having to defend against lawsuits related to on-the-job injuries.
This balancing of interests can put too much power in the hands of the insurers who provide workers’ compensation coverage to employers. Many people who have been seriously injured on the job find themselves being told by company doctors that their injuries are insufficient to support a workers’ compensation claim.
Workers might be told that they do not have a valid claim because:
- Their injuries are not that severe or do not exist
- They had a pre-existing condition that invalidates their claim
