Two of the more unpleasant things in life are dealing with the court system, and with insurance companies trying to underpay you. What can make these situations even worse is if you are only dealing with both of these entities because you were injured at work. Getting the money you rightly deserve by law is not as easy as you might think; an experienced worker’s compensation lawyer is a key determinant on whether you will get what you deserve.
Underhanded Insurance Companies
Insurance companies will do almost anything they can to pay you as little as possible. After all, this is how insurance companies make their money. Here are some helpful things to keep an eye out for so that you are not mistreated by insurance companies.
Biased Independent Medical Exam
Because worker’s compensation filings require a medical exam with an independent doctor paid for by the insurance company, sometimes the exam can be unfairly conducted in their favor.
Sometimes insurance companies will try to drag the claims process out to discourage workers seeking compensation.
Insurance companies could hire PI’s to surveil you to make sure that you are as injured as your claim says you are.
In all of these situations, the presence of a skilled and experienced attorney is vital. At Lanzotti & Rau, we know all the tricks in the insurance company playbook and will work tirelessly to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve for your workplace injury.
