Without a Tough Work Comp Attorney, Most Job Injury Claims Are Denied
Filing a claim for workers' compensation following a workplace accident should be simple. But getting the benefits you deserve is actually a complicated process. Employers and insurance companies can dispute claims to try to pay you as little as possible. The experienced workers' compensation attorneys at The Law Offices of Deborah G. Kohl can fight for your rights.
When you are injured on the job due to a workplace accident or you develop a longterm occupational disease, during the entire Workers' Compensation claim process, it's your word against everyone from your boss to employer-designated doctors to Workers' Compensation insurance adjusters. Even in the case of obvious at-work injuries, such as construction accidents and falls from heights, your pains and suffering may be questioned and your job injury application could be denied. When you have a less visible injury due to work, such as loss of hearing or toxic exposure, you need powerful legal representation to help you prove your injuries to all authorities involved. The so-called "Independent Medical Exam" doctor whom your employer recommends will most likely downplay your injuries, because that allows your boss and the Work Comp insurance company to get away with paying less money for your work injuries.
