At Klezmer Maudlin, we see so many examples of worker’s compensation lies, dishonesty and deception from medical practitioners. Last week, a client forwarded us a voicemail from an insurance adjuster on her work comp claim that was left for her before she hired our firm. The voicemail contained several misleading statements about Indiana law.
The voicemail first said that the PPI was not a settlement, but it was a benefit, leading our client to believe that if she accepted the PPI, she could still pursue a claim for future medical. This is a common worker’s compensation lie. Second, the adjuster said in the voicemail that the PPI was non-negotiable and that it was set by State law. This is also wrong and, frankly, another worker’s compensation lie. Finally, the voicemail said that if the injured worker did not accept the PPI, it could go away, and the worker would not be eligible to receive any money. That is also false information. Worker’s Compensation lies are common and you need an attorney to fight back!
It is sad to say, but there are very few players in the work comp system that you can trust. Some nurse case managers will be your advocate, but most will not. Some adjusters will be straightforward with you, but unfortunately, others will not. Attorneys have an ethical obligation to protect your interests and fight for you. You can trust a qualified workers’ compensation attorney.
