What Your Adjuster May Not Tell You
As a person injured in a workplace accident, you are probably concerned about getting full, fair and complete compensation without endangering your job. Your employer and their workers' comp insurance adjuster may be offering answers to your questions, but it's unlikely they are giving you the whole story. That's why you need the experienced workers' compensation lawyers at Percy Law Group, PC, on your side. With offices serving all of Massachusetts, and headquartered in Taunton, our experienced workers' compensation attorneys help clients understand their legal rights and practical options for pursuing workplace injury benefits. Don't rely on the adjuster for accurate information. Contact us today for a free, confidential consultation with a lawyer. You will not pay any fees unless we help you obtain benefits.
Personal Advocates Protecting Your Rights & Interests
Insurance adjusters tend to be nice people, but they are not looking out for your interests. They are looking out for their interests. Your adjuster works for the insurance company, and the insurance company works for your employer. That puts the adjuster squarely on your employer's side. Your adjuster may encourage you to go back to work as soon as possible, discourage you from seeing a lawyer, and possibly even suggest that you could have trouble at work if you rock the boat.
What he or she won't do is tell you what your many rights are. These rights include:
You have a right to a second opinion.
If you do not agree with the diagnosis made by your employer's doctor, you have a right to obtain a second opinion.
You are entitled to compensation for expenses.
The insurance company is required to pay for out-of-pocket expenses such as travel expenses for medical visits.
You can appeal terminations of benefits.
If the insurance company is trying to terminate your benefits early, you have a right to a fair hearing on that decision.
You may have a personal injury claim.
If someone other than your employer caused your injuries, you could get compensation through third-party liability.
Our firm offers a free initial confidential consultation. We will explain what you are entitled to and what we can do to help you get full, fair and complete compensation and benefits as soon as possible for your workers' compensation claim. Then you can decide what to do next. To learn more about your rights, don't hesitate to contact us today. Call (508) 206-9900 now.
