Workers' Compensation benefits provide a means of tax-free income to individuals hurt while working. While some situations and claims are straightforward,insurance company will fight to have these issues decided in their favor so as to minimize liability.
Insurance companies routinely retain counsel in the course of handling a worker's compensation claim. It is equally important for an injured worker to find an experienced and qualified attorney to answer questions, explain options and obtain the maximum relief available. This can include establishing an injury site the insurance company previously disputed, contesting a percentage schedule loss of use attributed by the carrier's independent medical examiner or in determining the degree of disability resulting from an injury.
