At its best, workers’ comp is a trade-off: When you make a workers’ compensation claim, you give up the right to sue your employer for an on-the-job injury. In return, the employer’s workers’ comp covers your medical care, time off work, and compensation for long-term injuries.
But this system has flaws, and it can break down over small disputes:
- Did your injury really occur on the job?
- Is your injury really as bad as you say?
- Do you need lifelong care, or are you just trying to game the system?
Sadly, these questions come up all the time. Insurance companies want to save money by denying your claim. Employers want to limit their payments in order to keep their workers comp insurance premiums down.
And while they fight back, there you are: the injured person, willing to give up your right to sue because you desperately need help and don’t want to upset anyone. You just want to go through the proper channels, keep your job, and get better.
