WC is a little less formal than typical litigation, but what many claimants do not realize is that nearly every advantage the insurer can exploit, they will. The first few days of a claim can be critical depending on the issues. I have had many people wait too long and end up facing a termination that cuts off there benefits. Other people I see getting a weak diagnosis and returning to work, then suffering for several month because they return to receive wages which cuts off there benefits – then we are fighting the real injury while the insurance company is starving them and denying the claim. If you have a serious injury, you should take the claim serious an return someone to walk you through it. Make no mistake, the early part of a claim is crucial. Good luck.
