Workplace injuries can be devastating. Often, even in seemingly straight-forward causation cases with work-related injuries, workers’ claims are denied by insurers to set up a settlement negotiation for less than the insurance company would otherwise be required to pay. Aside from the injury, the household reduction in income can make a bad situation worse. Once workers are denied by their employer (if self-insured) or the workers’ compensation insurance carrier, the clock starts ticking. Without income from a job or insurance disbursements, servicing debt, protecting retirement savings, and living life without great financial stress can become incredibly difficult. As this financial strain builds, insurance companies often use the injured worker’s financial position to settle the injured worker’s claim for far less than it is worth.
