Many employees who are seriously injured on the job file workers' compensation claims on their own. Often, they present the value of their case based on their doctor's opinion. The workers' compensation insurance company either accepts that amount or asks the injured party to be evaluated by an independent medical examination. Frequently, the opinion of insurance company doctors differs from those of the victim's doctors.
You don't have to accept what the insurance company offers based on its doctor's findings. In fact, the insurance company's offer may be far less than you need to cover medical bills and lost wages.
If you reject it, you eventually enter negotiations with the insurance company's highly trained professionals, who have been through this process thousands of times. You need the same experience and knowledge fighting for you.
