Workers Comp Insurance Companies
Don’t Let Insurance Companies Under-Compensate You
Workers comp insurance companies decide what amount of settlement will be offered to cover job injury victims’ medical bills, such as ambulance, hospitalization, physical therapy, vocational rehabilitation and/or lost wages. They know that an injured worker is vulnerable and just wants to get payments going. They’re used to pressuring workers into accepting a “low-ball” offer quickly, sometimes before the full scope of workplace injuries have been fully assessed.
Don’t let an insurance adjuster take advantage of your weakened state and pressure you into signing off on workers compensation benefits that under-compensate your for your work injury. What they won’t tell you is that there is a much higher number they’re prepared to offer in order to keep your case from going to trial—and our relentless workers comp lawyers can push them up to that amount, so that all your costs are covered.
New York Workers Compensation Independent Medical Exams May Downplay Your Job Injuries
Insurance adjusters will do everything they can to minimize your injuries, so that they pay less. They may try to say that your pain is from preexisting injuries or conditions. They may also try to influence you when you’re choosing a doctor, recommending a physician who they say will conduct an “independent medical exam.” But that person is often one who they hire and who will underestimate the severity of your workplace injuries, in order to save money.
According to an article in the New York Times, “The New York State’s workers’ compensation system serves no one well and is arguably the most adversarial of any state in the nation. Workers get shepherded to so-called independent medical examiners who are often anything but independent, since they are picked and paid directly by insurance companies.” That’s where we come in. We will fight hard for your rights, so that you aren’t manipulated or rail-roaded by an “IME” doctor who is working for your employer’s insurer.
