Work injuries are going to happen, and you should be able to count on your employer and workers compensation insurance to help you. However, we know that there are times when disability claims are denied, delayed, or miscalculated. When that happens, where do you turn?
When someone suffers a disability due to a work incident, they will either be permanently or temporarily disabled. Regardless of the situation, the following needs to be taken into consideration:
We need to consider a few things in these cases:
Please understand that workers’ compensation insurers are looking to make a profit, so any benefits they agree to pay you means less for them. Temporary disability is typically easier to get, but there are certain qualifications that need to be met.

It is vital that you and your attorney work to get you independently evaluated to ensure you are begin treated fairly and give a correct rating.
