Workers compensation is often touted by politicians as a way to fairly treat injured workers and to make sure they get the treatment that they need to recover from work injures and to make sure they have a living wage during the time they are recovering. That if the worker is permanently impaired as a result of the injury to ensure that they receive fair compensation for the permanent injury since they often time cannot return to the same job at the same salary. This looks great on paper and sounds very reassuring when CEO’s and politicians speak about it but unfortunately nothing could be further from the truth.
Here’s the truth. The entire workers compensation system is designed to do one thing. Cheat the injured worker out of what is due them for the injuries suffered on the job. Make no mistake the system is set up with traps all along the way to discourage the worker or to disqualify the worker from receiving benefits. The process is designed to be difficult and confusing. Its designed to delay treatment and deny benefits that are rightfully due. There is very little in the way of remedies to hold adjusters and insurance carriers responsible for bad behavior or for ignoring medical needs or making sure that temporary total payments are sent so that the worker can pay rent or keep the lights on or feed his family. Every step of the way in the process is a dog fight designed to make an injured worker get frustrated and quit the process and give up.
