Don't Downplay Your Injury

Hardworking people are often not inclined to complain about their injuries, even when the injury is very serious and potentially career-ending. If you have been injured in a work-related accident, or if a work injury accelerates or aggravates a pre-existing condition, it is important that you do not downplay your injury.

In far too many cases, injured workers downplay their injuries when talking to insurance adjusters, employers or doctors, and the statements the workers make are used to minimize or even deny their workers' compensation benefits. Before you talk to an insurance adjuster, talk to a lawyer with extensive experience in handling workers' comp claims.
