How can the workers comp insurance company take advantage of you and your family?

Let me count the ways!

They may tell you they require you to sign a medical records release (HIPPA) which will allow them to pull our entire medical history (since birth).

 They may tell you, you have to sign it to start your benefits or tell you they require a written or recorded statement about your injury. Whatever they get you to do or say will most likely be used against you. 

Insurance adjusters get you when you are most vulnernable - on pain medication, in the hospital, or awaiting surgery.  You may be terrified that you won't be able to provide for yourself and your family, and give them whatever they say they need.

They are trained to use formulas that will hurt, minimize or delay your case, and hope that you will get frustrated and give up.  And they have conducted hundreds, if not thousands, of these interviews.  How many have you done?
