The Workers’ Comp Insurance Company Stopped Paying Me — Why?
When you are injured on the job, the law requires that your employer provide payment of workers’ compensation benefits. In addition, they must pay for all of the medical bills you incur for the treatment of your work-related injury. However, in nearly all cases, there will come a time when your employer — together with its work comp insurance carrier — will attempt to reduce the amount of wage loss benefits paid to you each week. Oftentimes, they will try to put an end to your work comp benefits altogether.
Why Was My Workers’ Comp Reduced/Terminated?
My employer and/or its work comp insurance company stopped paying me the amount of workers’ comp benefits that I am entitled to, or they simply stopped paying me at all! There are many tactics that employers utilize to bring about reduced earnings in workers’ compensation. Sometimes insurance companies will resort to self-help and simply stop paying you or refuse to pay your medical bills. We are familiar with the procedures to reinstate your benefits and have the legal knowledge to penalize employers and insurance companies when they have acted illegally.
Insurance companies might also hire doctors and vocational workers to say you are fully recovered or capable of working — even though you are not — and then try to terminate, suspend or modify your benefits. In defense of such employer-initiated change, we may hire our own medical and vocational experts to defend the case and prevent your termination of worker’s compensation benefits in Reading, PA.
