|Should I talk to the insurance company about my workers' compensation claim?|
I had a client call me recently, and she asked me the question, “Should I talk to the insurance adjuster about my case?” If you’re reading this, you may have a similar question. I’ll tell you what I told the client.
Always speak with your employer about your workman’s compensation case. Answer any questions, return any calls, and provide any documentation your employer requests. You have a duty to provide that information to your employer. When it comes to dealing with insurance adjusters, however, you have no duty or obligation to speak with them. Insurance adjusters try to get statements and information from you that will help their case and hurt your case. Talking with them will devalue your case and potentially cause your case to be denied.
