The insurance company spends a considerable amount of time and energy defending these claims, they have nurses that follow the injured party, attorneys to consult with and doctors you must treat with for the first 90 days. Risk management can often lead to these “creative” defenses that often impune an employee for ulterior motives. Often times, potential clients handle these matters and make mistakes that could have been avoided and do not contact an attorney until it is too late. I routinely have to refuse good cases that have gone bad, which pro se individuals handled. Attorneys that do WC handle these cases on a contingent basis and the consult is generally free, I suggest talking to someone before it is too late.
