Ideally, the entire filing process should be led by your employer. That’s assuming, however, that your employer and your employer’s insurance carrier follow the proper procedures. Many employers and insurance companies are more interested in their bottom line than anything else, so you can’t always trust these entities to be transparent with you about their policies and your rights. That’s where an experienced workers’ comp lawyer comes in. If you have questions about any part of the legal process or your employer and the insurance company are making it difficult for you, please don’t hesitate to give our office a call for help.
