Denied claim
I injured my back and was out of work for 4 months. Whenever I went back to work, they put me at a new job and was injured again. This time I hurt my knee. Someone moved an ergo mat that was around a workstation and I fell. I let my supervisor know; I did not even leave the area whenever I fell. I yelled for him to come over and check it out. He said that he would have it taken care of but, never did. I let other people know as well. No one ever fixed it. I was having my weekly check ups at the doctor regarding my back. I advised them that it had bothered my back again and irritated it. They never noted the fall. I did my job of reporting this injury and accident and my knee started getting worse. I contacted my employer and they finally got information to the insurance company. My employer told me that there was a miscommunication and everyone thought I must have been talking about my back. The insurance co.set up an investigation and no one seems to recall this. How ironic? I believe that are trying to cover themselves for not properly handling this. In the mean time the insurance company has denied the claim. I waited and waited for 2 months for the employer to get the paperwork together and 30 days for the insurance co. to do the investigation. I contacted my attorney and they said that there are options. They have already sent the adjustor a letter telling them that they represent me but, he still called me to say that he denied it.
yup. many have their claims denied. your atty should be able to help.
good luck,
