Defending employers in workers' compensation cases

Some people in the Quad Cities may believe that the workers' compensation process is almost "automatic." However, that is far from the case. Just because workers submit claims that they were injured on the job does not mean that workers' compensation benefits will be paid to those individuals. An application for workers' compensation benefits will be scrutinized to make sure it is a valid claim.

Now, most of these types of claims are usually, in fact, valid, at least to some extent. But, there are some that need a bit of push back from employers, whether they are large or small employers. The severity of the injury in question may come into doubt, as might the duration of time that the injured worker is expected to miss time from work. The circumstances of the accident that caused the injury may even be called into question. Facts and details, as in all legal matters, are crucial in a workers' compensation claim.

Another aspect of workers' compensation claims that can be difficult for employers to navigate is the fact that the laws governing these types of claims can be somewhat complicated, and can vary on a state-by-state basis. Understanding the applicable law is also a crucial element of defending against a workers' compensation claim.
