Every day, injured workers deal with doctors handpicked by the insurance companies, second and third opinions, constant delaying tactics, and ethically questionable private investigators who are trained to ensnare workers in technicalities that could allow the insurance companies to deny the claim.

Most people don’t know how to get their lives back on track after suffering a work injury. Our mission is to create individualized plans to get our clients back to health quicker, get the bills paid, get back on the job, and live the lives they want to live.

Insurance companies also have enormous public relations machines that give the public the perception that most workers comp claims are based on fraud and deceit. If you have been injured on the job and are unable to work, you will have to face an organized and well-financed team of doctors, lawyers and private investigators just to get barely enough money to put food on the table and provide for their families. To fight back and protect your rights contact a Toledo Workers’ Compensation lawyer today. An experienced injury attorney can help advocate on your behalf and ensure that all the necessary legal steps are taken.

Interacting With Insurance Following An Accident

While the claimant is waiting through all these delays, this gives the insurance company plenty of time to hire private investigators to keep an eye on you. If that sounds like we’re being paranoid, believe us, we aren’t. This is big business in the Private Investigations field; so much so that there is actually a textbook published on how to catch “insurance abusers.” Something as trivial as being caught not limping as badly as the doctor described is often enough for the insurance company to cancel your benefits.

Another tactic is to delve deeply into your personal history, where total irrelevancies from your past can take on important new meanings. For instance, one claimant who was trying to get workers comp because he was exposed to toxic fumes at a power plant for over 18 years had his claim denied because it was discovered that he had a drinking problem. The fact that this drinking problem had been dealt with and overcome years before didn’t matter at all to the insurers. They saw an opportunity and ran with it.

What to Expect Following a Work Injury

If you get injured on the job, you will most likely have to see a doctor that is on the insurance company payroll. These doctors will quite often offer what is called palliative treatment, which is basically the most minimal and least expensive treatment that the doctor can get away with.

These doctors aren’t doing this because they are heartless or are ignoring their Hippocratic Oath; they are doing it because they have to do SOMETHING while they fill out the paperwork, tell the injured worker to petition for a hearing, and jump through a substantial number of hoops in order to get the insurance company to pay for the more expensive treatment that is needed.
