At John Price Law Firm, LLC, we want to help. Our attorneys work hard to get our clients the benefits they deserve , even when the insurance company has turned them down one or more times. We represent all types of injured workers, including construction workers, state employees, hospital employees, office professionals and others.
The Worker’s Compensation Claim Process
- If a worker has a work related injury it is important for them to quickly report it to their employer. Waiting to report your injury to your employer and hurt your chances for a successful insurance claim.
- Your employer will document the injury and file a claim with their insurance provider. Your employer will want to take down all of the details from the incident and speak to any witnesses to the incident.
- Your employer will send the claim to the insurance company and your employer‘s insurance company will either approve or deny the claim.
Many times the claim amount offered through an employer’s insurance company may not be substantial to cover all of your costs. This is why it is so important to have an experienced lawyer like the ones at John Price Law Firm working for you to negotiate a settlement that considers all of your future expenses.
In the settlement process the insurance company will provide an initial offer of payment. This payment may cover current loss of income and medical bills, but may not cover future treatments, future lost wages or unpaid benefits. You may also be entitled to disability if the injury incurred leaves you permanently impaired. Your attorney will help you calculate a reasonable payout and they will negotiate this pay out with the insurance company.
There are two types of work injury settlements, a lump sum settlement or a structured payment plan. With a lump sum payment you will receive a one time payment that covers all of your medical costs and other reimbursement under the claim. With a structured payment plan you will receive regularly scheduled payments over a specified time. Included with this may be a separate account for future medical related bills.
