Remember that famous line from Animal House? This is true in workers' compensation cases as well. The biggest scam in the insurance industry is that workers do not understand their rights regarding workers' compensation. And, it's not hard to understand why. This is a complicated system with a bunch of rules and procedural steps. A single worker can get lost quickly in this forest. Today we write about a tactic that often is used when a worker has a traumatic injury, but recovers well. Assume a worker has broken their leg in several places. The injury is terrible, and the recovery is long and difficult. But with proper medical care the injury results in a strong recovery after two - six months. At the end of that healing time the worker finally gets back to work and everyone applauds, and it seems like the work comp is over. But is it? For sure... if the worker stops right there in their knowledge, they can lose tens of thousands of dollars by simply not educating themselves further or making a free phone call. What the work comp industry does not want anyone to know is that even after your return to work, many injuries will result in additional payments. Yes, that's right. But let me say it again, usually there will be additional payments for a serious injury. It makes no difference that you got back to work. It makes no difference that you are feeling better. In many cases it makes no difference that you had a strong recovery. Work comp pays compensation for the effect that an injury has on the body. This is called loss of function and this factor alone can be very valuable. So, here's what you need to know... the phone call is free. ake, Channing Dutton & Jim Lawyer.
