Getting Paid When You’ve Been Hurt On The Job
“How do I get paid when I’ve been hurt on the job?” Workers who have been injured on the job and missed work and have reported the injury to their HR department do not always receive wage replacement payments in a timely manner. We can help.
We often see insurance companies ignoring or delaying payments in the hope that the injured worker will not force the issue and require them to do the right thing. We can help by filing a motion requiring them to admit or deny the claim.
Schedule a consultation with an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer after a workplace injury. Contact an experienced workers’ compensation attorney at the law offices of The Bollinger Law Firm in Charlotte, North Carolina.
You May Be Entitled To Wage Replacement Through Workers’ Comp
Learn about the benefits that you are entitled to after a workplace accident, including payment for qualified medical expenses and wage replacement.
Many employees expect their companies’ HR departments to help after they have been hurt on the job. While individual HR representatives may be sympathetic, their task is to limit any damage done to the company’s bottom line as a result of your injury. Neither they nor the workers’ compensation insurer are obliged to volunteer the information when you are qualified to receive wage replacement payments. Perhaps you were informed in some small-print document — but you never noticed the information, or didn’t understand it.
Remember: The insurance adjuster and the human resources manager are not your friends in a workers’ compensation case. They are your adversaries.
Have You Received A Denial Notice After Reporting Your Injury?
The law gives you 30 days to report your injury in writing to your employer. If you haven’t heard back from your workers’ compensation insurance claims adjuster within 15 days of reporting your injury, contact us. We find that insurance adjusters will ignore your report for months if you do not press the issue. We aggressively pursue benefits that our clients are entitled to after a workplace injury, including any applicable wage replacement benefits. Some lawyers will not accept “denied” workers’ comp cases, but we will. We don’t mind the fight. We love to win and hate to lose.
