Your DC Workers Comp Case is Important to Your Health and Finances
Let's face it, after an injury at work, everything changes.
You now have to deal with the effects of the injury - hospitalization, surgery, rehab, pain, medical appointments, doctors visits and all of the things you need to do medically to recover from your work injury.
But once you're in the workers comp system, it's a lot more than that.
You're now dealing with insurance adjusters, nurse case managers, investigators, insurance doctors, workers comp insurance lawyers and everything else a big insurance company can throw at you. Plus the workers comp law and regulations are confusing - sometimes what you read in the statute has been changed but not updated online - and there are 58 chapters of D.C. regulations that go along with the DC Workers Comp Act.
And your insurance adjuster has probably handled thousands of cases just like yours for the insurance company.
How are you supposed to keep up with that?
Don't let the workers comp insurance adjuster take advantage of you.
Because if you have a serious on the job injury, can't work and need medical treatment, its not a fight you want to take on alone. You could lose everything you've worked hard for by making a critical mistake with your workers comp case (and you won't even know it's a mistake).
