Many companies are reputable and honor their workers' legitimate claims for compensation benefits after a workplace injury occurs.
But unfortunately, it has also been our experience that far too many companies try to shortchange their workers and deny them their rightful claims to workers' compensation benefits. When this occurs, the companies are rolling the dice on the odds that the denied claimant will give up and drop their claim.
The strategy is often effective, as many injured employees do just that. But savvy workers who suffer on-the-job injuries realize that they have additional options to explore for pressing their claims for worker's compensation benefits.
