Work Comp Insurance Company: Friend or Foe?

By admin on February 25, 2014

If you or a loved one has been injured at work, it may be difficult to figure out the right steps to take to ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive the compensation to which you are entitled. Filing a workers’ compensation claim can be a complex and difficult process, especially for those who have never filed one before. Understandably, filing a workers’ comp claim can be an added burden at an already stressful time for both the injured person and his or her family.

This is likely the moment when a claims adjuster from your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company will call. He or she will try to convince you that your health and your rights are the company’s paramount concern, but just because someone says it doesn’t mean it’s true. However genuine an adjuster may seem, he or she is still an employee of the insurance company. As such, he or she will more than likely do what’s in the best interest of the insurance company, which may conflict with what’s in your best interest. Therefore, the claims adjuster is not the person you should entrust with your workers’ compensation benefits.
