Worker’s compensation is designed to provide insurance in case you’re injured while on the job. Unfortunately, as with other types of insurance, actually getting a claim covered can be difficult. Insurance companies often want to avoid paying for a claim, and your employer may be seeking to avoid an increase in the premiums they pay.
If you’ve been denied worker’s compensation or the amount you were awarded doesn’t cover all of your expenses, we may be able to help you seek a full recovery. You are entitled to seek an independent medical opinion and to have all of your costs covered within the limits of the policy. If your claim is denied or undervalued, you have the right to appeal and to go to court if needed.
Don’t lose your rights. Taking any action before talking to a lawyer could limit the amount you’re able to recover. Contact us now to schedule a consultation at our Easley, South Carolina, office. We serve Pickens, Greenville, Anderson, and Oconee counties.
