Injured on the Job? What Next?
When you are injured on the job you can be expected to fill out an incident report. You will also need to meet with your employer to discuss the injury and accident. You will need to see a company approved doctor to determine the severity of your injury. This is where the process can get complicated. Because the doctor is working with the insurance company, you can expect him to find ways to deny coverage such as claiming the incident did not occur at the workplace, that the injury was caused by a pre existing medical condition or that the injury is not as serious as you claim.
This is where we come in. When you hire Walz Law Office to handle your worker’s compensation claim, we will ensure that you are getting fair compensation for the damages caused. We will ask for all of your work records, medical records and previous insurance claims and go from here. It is also advised that you see another doctor of your own choice for a second opinion. As part of our commitment to you, we will thoroughly investigate all aspects of your claim, so that we can protect your rights at any stage of the process.
