After being injured on the job, you expect to be treated fairly by your employer and the insurance company when seeking workers' compensation benefits. You are out of work and you need income and medical attention fast. Instead, you may face resistance and roadblocks. Sometimes employers refuse to submit a claim. In other cases, the insurance company will deny benefits, pressure you to settle for an unfair amount or ask you to accept an offer before you are ready. It is important to contact a qualified attorney as soon as possible after you are injured so your road to recovery is as smooth as possible.
