The best time to contact a workers’ comp or workman’s comp lawyer is right after an injury. That is exactly when the insurance company will start working on your undermining your workmans comp claim. It’s important to remember that the job of insurance company adjusters and nurse case managers is to save their company money by keeping your claim as inexpensive as possible. Insurance companies keep claims small by controverting the claim, denying medical treatment, sending injured worker’s to insurance company preferred doctors, and denying weekly benefits.
Even if you feel that your employer will take care of you, call a workman’s comp lawyer right away. If you have a serious injury involving your back or neck it’s especially important to contact an attorney as these types of injuries can result in long-term medical treatment and time missed from work.
