Insurance adjusters will do everything they can to cut your benefits and save money. They know what type of cases they can take advantage of, allowing them to deny you money that you are owed.
Here are some things that insurance adjusters will look for. When these types of cases, they know that they can easily win the claim. By hiring an experienced workers comp attorney, you can protect yourself from adjusters and get the settlement you deserve.
1. The Injured Worker Has No Attorney
Adjusters always look out for claims cases where the injured party does not have an attorney. They believe that they will be able to save money for the company by offering a small settlement. Many workers, not knowing how much their case is really worth, accept this offer and lose a significant amount of money.
It can be difficult to get all of the money you need from an insurance adjuster, especially when recovering from serious injuries. That’s why you should trust an experienced workers comp attorney. They can make sure that you receive all benefits that you are due, including payment for overtime and bonuses that many adjusters try to cut out of your payments.
You may also need money to other costs related to your injuries, such as paying someone for housekeeping. These costs can add up, and insurance adjusters know it. Our attorneys make sure that you receive money to cover all of the incidental expenses related to your injuries.
2. Doctors That Look Out For The Insurance Companies
Insurance adjusters know that medical reports make a big difference when it comes to the amount of benefits that you’ll receive with a workers comp claim. That’s why they do everything they can to pick doctors who will rush you back to work and give you a clean bill of health, even though you are still injured. This saves the insurance company money while putting your health at risk.
If you feel that your doctor is trying to push you to return to work before you are ready, you should reach out to a workers comp attorney. At Glacier Law, we take action to prevent adjusters from slashing your benefits. We also make sure that you get a fair assessment from a doctor who is not in the pocket of the insurance company.
3. The Worker Has A Bad Attorney
Insurance companies hire experienced adjusters who know how to save the company as much money as possible. These adjusters often take advantage of inexperienced attorneys to cut payments and lower the value of workers’ claims.
If you have been injured at work, you need an attorney who will be aggressive when dealing with adjusters. They will take every opportunity they can find to deny you money. The adjuster needs to know that your attorney is not going to settle for a lowball offer.
4. The Worker Needs Money
Insurance adjusters know the financial impact that an injury can have on you and your family. They try to take advantage of the situation by offering you a small payout, hoping that you’ll be desperate enough to take the money.
If you are not receiving the money you are owed, contact an experienced workers compensation attorney right away. Adjusters will keep trying to slash your payments. That’s why you need a skilled attorney to take up your case and fight to win you a fair settlement. If the adjuster still won’t back down, your attorney can take the case to court.
5. The Idea That Attorneys Will Take Most Of Your Settlement
Insurance adjusters would be happy for you to think that your attorney is going to take most of your money. This rumor prevents many workers from hiring an attorney, which ends up benefiting adjusters and the insurance companies.
Attorneys will only take a small portion of any settlement that you win. You are also much more likely to win a sizable payout if you have a skilled workers comp attorney fighting for you. Workers with attorneys tend to win settlements that are over twice as large as those of other workers who choose to file their own case.
That means that, even when you add in legal fees, you will receive significantly more money if you choose to hire a workers comp attorney.
6. Employers Who Take Workers Off Insurance Company Payrolls
Insurance adjusters want you off the company payroll. They’ll do just about everything they can to slash your benefits and save the insurance company money. If you employer offers you light duty or other part time employment, you
There is nothing wrong with going back to work part time- if you are ready for it.
An attorney can ensure that any light duty offers made by an employer are legal, and that they won’t compromise your financial benefits. Going back to work will cut into your insurance payments, so you need to be sure that you will still be getting the money you are owed once you start working again.
7. Rehab Nurses Who Are In The Pocket Of The Insurance Companies
Rehab nurses and counselors can be quite expensive. If you’ve been involved in a major accident, your recovery could involve months of physical therapy and rehab. To save money, adjusters will often pick nurses to cut down on their costs.
You deserve proper care after any injury, and should get the full amount of therapy that your doctor recommends. Your attorney can fight adjusters to ensure that you are receiving the full extent of your benefits. If the adjuster still won’t concede, we can take legal action so that you receive proper rehab following your injuries.
