Workers' Comp Should be simple

Injured workers are supposed to automatically receive Workers’ Compensation benefits.  Most people don’t know that Workers’ Comp is a “No Fault” system.  If you’re hurt on the job you should be entitled to Workers Comp insurance, medical care, and money for time off work--all WITHOUT consideration of who’s at fault.  We all know that insurance companies rarely make things simple, but now you can get some help right from the beginning.

Get Help before tHE problemS Start!

Make sure you get the information on how workers’ comp works BEFORE your problems with the insurance company starts.  Our legal team can walk you through the process step-by-step.  We are dedicated to protecting the healthcare and compensation rights of injured workers.  When a worker is hurt, certain rights and protections are triggered by state law.  If you do not know how to claim these rights, they can be taken from you.  Pollan Dobbs, PLLC is committed to navigating these waters for you, so that you can concentrate on getting well and getting back to work.

6 Tips for Injured Workers


Easy Tips for Injured Workers

If you are hurt on the job you must be able to protect your health and your income. Here are a few important tips for anyone injured on the job:

1.     Report the Injury Immediately.

Most workers are covered by Workers’ Comp under state law. However, nothing can be done with your claim until you report it to your employer.  Do not be tricked or threatened into keeping an injury unreported.

2.     You May Choose Your Own Doctor.

You may see the doctor of your choice. NEVER sign any paper listing your choice of doctor by name. If anyone asks you to sign a something like this, call us immediately! You may get only ONE chance to choose, and don’t have to use your employer’s private doctors. New laws have changed this right.  See how it applies to you!

3.     Your Related Medical Bills Should be Paid if You Were Hurt on the Job.

We can make sure the insurance companies follow the law and pay for all of your medical bills with no out-of-pocket expense.

4.     Your Workers’ Comp Pay or a ‘Comp Check’.

If your doctor takes you off work and no benefits are being paid, you will likely need to call an attorney.   You may be entitled to disability benefits while you are off work and being treated by your doctor.  We make sure your disability checks are paid on time.

5.     Don’t Miss Your Deadlines.

       In most cases you MUST file for your Workers’ Comp claim within a limited time after of the date of your injury. Contact us ASAP to protect yourself!

       If you started receiving Workers’ Comp benefits and they have been cancelled, then you often have one (1) year from that date to demand payment. You will likely need an attorney for this.  

6.     Talk to Us Before Settling Your Case.

It’s better to be safe than sorry. Most settlements are final. Make sure your rights are protected.  Our office can handle the process for you from beginning to end so you can concentrate on getting well.
