Problems you may encounter
EXAMPLES OF PROBLEMS YOU MAY ENCOUNTER FROM YOUR EMPLOYER’S INSURANCE COMPANY:
*Insurance adjusters ignoring or dragging their feet on responding to your claim. Not responding to your repeated phone calls and requests for additional medical treatment. Giving you the “runaround.”
*Routinely paying your TTD checks late, to cause you financial hardship and “encourage” you to go back to work sooner.
*The insurance company’s doctor might deem you fine to return to full duty work with no restrictions, when in fact you are not ready to return.
IF THIS SOUNDS FAMILIAR, PLEASE GIVE US A CALL, WE KNOW YOUR RIGHTS AND WILL REPRESENT YOU!
*The insurance company might make the claim that you were actually injured elsewhere, off the job and deny your claim.
*The insurance company might claim that you had a pre-existing condition that you did not reveal on your job application and therefore dispute or deny your claim.
*The insurance company might claim that you were not really hurt or are now “malingering” or exaggerating your injuries in order to collect a large settlement check.
*The insurance company might deny your request to see a different doctor or a medical specialist who specializes in your type of injuries.
*The insurance company might deny your request for an Independent Medical Exam.
*The insurance company might limit or simply cut off your physical therapy before you have received the full benefit from that treatment or reach maximum medical improvement (MMI).
*Your employer’s insurance company may offer you a premature settlement when you have not yet reached maximum medical improvement (MMI) and still need additional medical treatment.
These are only a few of the practices the insurance companies use to quickly and inexpensively settle Workers’ Compensation claims. Don’t be fooled into believing the insurance company when they say you can easily handle the matter yourself. Unless you know all your rights and are current on the ever changing law of SC Workers’ Compensation, we would advise against it.
