Dealing With the Workers' Comp Insurance Adjuster

Are You Receiving the Benefits You Need?

Insurance companies will never tell you the full range of medical and financial benefits you can receive as an injured worker. Insurance companies are looking out for their self interest, not your well-being. At Cutler & Silverglade, we have been representing the interests of injured workers in Indiana and Illinois for more than 25 years.

Many workers' compensation insurance companies will take every opportunity to deny your claim even if it is a legitimate compensable claim. Don't let a denial keep you from getting a consultation. We can make legal challenges to these denials and make sure that you receive the benefits you deserve.

Was Your Workers' Compensation Claim Denied?

Insurance company adjusters often give groundless or flimsy denials that have no basis in the law, or try to cut your benefits short:

  • An old back injury does not mean you can't have a new claim for re-injury
  • A pre-existing condition is not a defense against a new claim of injury
  • A degenerative condition is not a defense when your accident made the condition noticeable, or made the condition worse than it was
  • An injury that develops over time (cumulative trauma) is an accident just like a fall or other injury that occurs at a specific moment in time
  • Future coverage for needed prescription medications needs to be guaranteed, or incorporated into the value of any settlement
  • Joint replacements (shoulder and knee) can be covered by workers compensation

Don't ever accept a denial of a workers' compensation claim without consulting with a workers' compensation lawyer.

Workers' compensation tip: Some injured workers think that light-duty work is optional. However, if you turn down light-duty work you may be fired. If you feel you are unable to perform the light-duty assignment, call our attorneys.
