Workers Compensation Companies Employ Adjusters, Nurse Case Managers, Attorneys, Vocational Specialists and More to Fight Your Claim
If you're on workers compensation, you have probably already figured out it's not a fair fight. Your workers comp adjuster has handled hundreds, if not thousands, of workers compensation claims in D.C., Maryland and Virginia. Their job is to limit the amount the insurance company pays for medical treatment, testing, medications, therapy, benefits, etc. You name it, she will try to reduce it.
Remember, the adjuster works for the insurance company - not you and your family. In fact, your employer may have very little say in the matter of how you're treated, and often can't help you (other times they're upset because you got hurt on their job and may not even care).
Plus, these insurance adjusters handle hundreds of cases at a time and they really don't have time for you. They don't want to be bothered and you may notice that days and weeks have gone by while you are waiting to hear back from them on important issues like your paycheck and medical treatment authorizations. You might even be waiting to hear back on authorization for surgery - and your condition is getting worse while you wait for them.
You Need an Advocate on Your Side to Balance the Scales
Unless you have the experience and knowledge to deal with them, plus the time to devote to calling, writing, and faxing everything to get things done, it's never going to be fair.
With a minor injury that may not matter, but if you need significant medical treatment and will be out of work for an extended period of time because of your injury, you don't want to rely on the adjuster to do right by you. You will definitely need an attorney to advocate for your and your family.
