Fighting For Injured Workers’ Rights
Most employers insist that you get your treatment with doctors they assign to you – whether they are doing a good job or not. These Medical Provider Network (MPN) doctors often care more about cutting costs than taking care of your health. Even when the MPN doctor requests certain treatment, the insurance company delays or denies it.
But some injuries are serious and complex. They require specialized medical attention and could prevent you from returning to your regular job. You better believe the claims adjuster is preparing their case right from the beginning– and you better believe they are looking out for themselves.
Often, the claims adjuster will insist that you see their “network” doctors, and may have their “representatives” show up to your medical appointments (usually nurses). Medical treatment that you obviously need after the hospitalization isn’t so obvious to the claims adjuster.
When you are struggling physically, emotionally and financially due to a serious injury, don’t wait for things to get better.
