Frequently Asked Questions
What should I expect from insurance companies?
The insurance company will usually contact you to attempt to take a recorded statement shortly after the injury. In many cases the statement is an opportunity for experienced insurance adjusters to paint you in a corner. Do not take on an insurance company alone.
Call me now and schedule a free consultation and I will see that you get the justice you deserve.
If your claim is wrongfully denied, we will file a Claim Petition to start a legal action against the insurance company. Your claim could include wage loss benefits, payments for doctor's bills, retraining benefits, payments for permanent injury, and death benefits.
Usually, the insurance company will take your deposition. I will personally prepare you for the deposition so that you know what to expect and how to present your case in the best light.
Within six to nine months after the filing of the Claim Petition, the Court will order the parties to discuss settlement during the settlement conference.
Most cases settle at that point, but some do not. If the case is not settled, a hearing will be held in front of a worker compensation judge. The hearing will occur within approximately one year of the filing of the Claim Petition.
In cases of financial hardship, the Court will expedite the process, and will order a hearing within three to four months of the filing of the Claim Petition.
If you have been injured on the job and are not receiving full benefits that you are entitled to, take back control of the situation by enlisting my help. I understand the anger you may be feeling if you have been denied workers' compensation benefits. Put me to work for you and I will get you the benefits that you deserve.
