1. Your doctor recommended surgery. Insurance companies hate to pay for surgery.
2. Your doctor determined you a chronic pain patient, that you will need pain medication to treat your symptoms. Insurance companies want to close out claims.
3. Your employer sabotaged your case. I’ve seen employers deny the accident happened, even if a supervisor witnessed it and I’ve seen employers hide evidence. I’ve seen employers refuse to file the required Report of Injury. Why? They don’t want their rates going up.
For every move the insurance company or your employer makes to deny you benefits, there is a counter move. Know your rights! If you’ve been hurt at work, you need to talk to an attorney.
