CHECK THAT YOUR CLAIM IS PENDING
If you do not have the assistance of a workers’ compensation expert, the process of filing a claim can be complicated. We have many times seen cases in which someone thought that they had a pending workers’ compensation claim, but upon further inspection, a workers’ compensation attorney discovered that they made a mistake during the filing process and the claim was never accepted. Even if you are positive you did everything perfectly, make sure to check that the claim is pending.
ARE YOU MISSING ANY IMPORTANT INFORMATION?
Sometimes a claim can be held up because you did not submit all of the needed information to the insurance company. Check to make sure nothing is missing from the workers’ compensation claim that might hold you up.
MAKE SURE YOUR MEDICAL CARE IS COVERED
While the claim is being processed you should still have at least some of your medical care covered by your workplace insurance company. If you are required to pay for your medical care completely out of pocket, talk to HR at your company or hire a workers’ compensation attorney to investigate why you are not being compensated for your recovery and treatment.
EDUCATE YOURSELF ON YOUR ELIGIBILITY FOR COMPENSATION BENEFITS
Knowledge is power, and that is especially true when it comes to workers’ compensation claims. While your claim is being processed, educate yourself on all of the benefits and compensation you are entitled to due to your injury. You may be missing out on crucial benefits if you do not take the time to research workers’ compensation benefits! You also can schedule a meeting with a workers’ compensation lawyer to go over your claim.
LISTEN TO YOUR DOCTOR
Make sure to listen to your doctor and follow their instructions as you recover from your injury. This should be the case with any injury, but it is especially true if you are trying to collect workers’ compensation benefits. You want to have proof that you are doing everything you can to get healthy!
