Studies show the number one cause of bankruptcy in The United States is the inability to pay accrued medical bills. Even those with health insurance often do not escape hardship due to medical bills.
The unfortunate truth is that health insurance companies will do everything in their power to avoid covering your medical costs in your dire time of need. We hear from clients time and time again of the attempts insurance companies’ representatives make to hold back what is owed them. These attempts are demoralizing and often times intrusive. Nurse case managers sent by insurance companies may barge in during medical exams and disrupt the procedure; adjusters may fail to provide medical attention as promised and, when they do, may send doctors prone to make diagnoses beneficial to the insurance companies, i.e., diagnoses that downplay the severity of your work related injuries.

They may try to cast the blame on you and exploit your lack of experience with worker’s compensation procedures to deter you from filing claims.
