If you were hurt at work in 2014, last year was probably a difficult one for you and your family.
The whole D.C. workers comp system can seem like it is against you (and it usually is!). Let's face it, if you're a worker, you're all of a sudden thrust into an unfamiliar system you haven't prepared for.
The insurance adjuster has handled thousands of claims for the workman's comp insurance company. She can make you feel like you're bothering her just to get her to do her job. And so you call her and call her and call her. For what?
So she can tell you she hasn't gotten to your case yet...
Sound familiar? It's what a lot of injured workers experience when they first get hurt on the job. But that's not the worst of it.
You see, adjusters are trained by the insurance company in tricks, tactics and strategies that will cost you money.
And it's legal - not necessarily fair, but legal. Their job is to make money for the insurance company. Here are some of the ways they do it:
- Not telling you everything you need to know. They are under no duty to explain the law to you, or your rights under the workers comp system, or even whether you are receiving the correct rate of benefits.
- Telling you things that are wrong or misleading. Adjusters may just tell you "this is how it's done" or "it's always done this way" or "in order to start your benefits, you need to sign this form"
- Making up stuff that sounds right. Your adjuster may tell you that a certain doctor is on their workers comp panel or that pre-approval is required for follow up visits with your treating doctor.
The problem with workers comp is how do you know what is right? How do you separate fact from fiction? You just want to do the right thing for you and your family. You've never sued anyone and you've never needed a lawyer before.
