Q: How to 'push' worker's compensation insurance company?
Almost 2 weeks ago, I was horribly injured at work. Taken to a hospital by ambulance, bleeding. Stitched up. Did not hear from WC insurance for 4 days. Made my own appointment for a surgeon's visit. Had surgery scheduled. WC insurance cancelled the surgery at last moment. Now I am in danger of losing a limb and WC insurance will not return my communications. They insisted using Fax. I got a fax service and sent them the information. Still, have heard nothing from them. I filed a complaint with the state insurance division and spoke with a compliance investigator. Lawyers tell me the case is either "too small" or "too young." I am at the mercy of a large corporation.
What do I do?
A: You should not be at the mercy or whim of the worker's compensation carrier. Get an attorney in place now. Worker's compensation attorneys know the system and how to push to get the clients the care that the clients absolutely need and deserve. Most worker's compensation attorneys will give you a free consultation.
