Will The Workers' Compensation Insurance Carrier Act Like The Grinch This Holiday Season

Topic: Workers Compensation

If you have consistently had problems with late checks or non payment of medical treatment, that is a trend that is likely to continue. The remedy for this is the filing of a penalty petition. At KK&O, we keep insurance companies in check every day by filing these petitions so our clients are not deprived of their right to receive wage loss and medical care. If your checks have been coming consistently and you do not have a problem with your medical care, the likelihood or something happening to your check is slimmer. However, many people go away around the holidays including your claim's adjuster. If you know your adjuster is going away or if your check is late, notify your attorney so they can call the adjuster right away. Sometimes, it is simply a matter of your claim fell off the schedule for payment and a quick stroke of the computer key by the adjuster can fix this. At KK&O, we realize your workers' compensation check is the lifeline for your financial existence and we react right away if that lifeline is put in jeopardy. Have a Happy Holiday Season and let us know how we can help you.

PostTis the Season: For Work Injuries, Aches and Pains part II

Topic: Workers Compensation

If you have a work injury that involves a break or a fracture, then you can probably tell when it is going to snow or rain. The joint or point of injury will get stiff and sore. This is a consequence of the injury itself. It also means that you still have lingering issues as it relates to your work injury. A broken or fractured bone can mean the early onset of arthritis. Damp weather and Arthritic pain go together like a slug on a brick of salt, get my drift. If you are having ongoing problems associated with your injury, report this to your doctor and make note of the area where the pain radiates from. Always stay on top of your injuries before they get the upper hand on you.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. The song for injured workers should be , Don't let me fall, Don't let me fall, Don't let me fall. Inevitably, we have all had our fair share of slip and falls on icy pavements, roads or stairs. If you happen to fall while in the course and scope of your employment, it is considered a work injury. November through March proves to be the worst time for back, knee and wrist injuries. If you think about the mechanism of a fall, you try to brace and balance yourself with your arms and legs. In the process of this action, you end up hurting your extremities as well as your back. You should report this right away to a supervisor or manager and fill out an incident report. If the employer tries to discourage you by using the old "bad weather" excuse tell him or her to stick it where the sun don't shine (Just Kidding). Stand your ground and report the incident. For more answers to your questions on work injuries, email or call Jason Krasno.

Topic: Employer Treatment of Injured Workers

The general rule with returning to work is make sure that the job you go back to will not cause further damage to your injured body part. It is always better to work with restrictions that are set forth by your treating doctor. If the job you are offered violates the restrictions set forth by your treating doctor, then you have a basis to not return to the job.
