Attorney Brenda Moses discusses workers’ compensation from the insurance carrier’s perspective.
Most insurance carriers are for profit corporations reporting back to shareholders. The job of a workers’ compensation claims adjuster is to minimize and control costs on a case, which means denying medical treatment, wage replacement benefits, or the entire case if possible. The insurance carrier wants to get you back to work so that they won’t need to pay you wage replacement benefits, and they want to pay as little as possible for your medical care. There is also no legal requirement for the insurance carriers to tell you what you should be doing to protect your workers’ compensation rights. The insurance carrier has attorneys working for them – call us so that we help you get the medical care and wage replacement benefits you need.
