What happens if my workers’ comp claim in contested by the insurance carrier?
Recently, someone from South Carolina called my office. They were upset and worried. They had been seriously injured on their job in South Carolina. They had cooperated with their employer. They had cooperated with their employer’s workers’ compensation carrier. They had even given a recorded statement to their employer’s workers’ compensation carrier. They thought, if I’m just honest, everything will be fine.
They didn’t realize that during this recording with an insurance adjuster, the insurance adjuster was going to ask them trick questions. They didn’t realize that when the adjuster says, did anything unusual happen, and they thought to themselves, well, I got injured on the job, but I wouldn’t say anything unusual happened, they didn’t realize that was a trick question. They didn’t realize that the adjuster was going to use that to deny their claim. They didn’t realize that after working for this employer for 10 to 15 years, always being on time, always being willing to work overtime, that the employer would just leave them out in the cold. Now they realized that’s exactly what had happened.
