Persistent Riverside & Inland Empire Workers’ Compensation Representing Delayed Claim Employees
Did you take all of the necessary steps to file a workers’ compensation claim following a workplace injury? Are you still waiting on compensation and growing fearful of medical bills piling up? If so, RP Law Group can help you understand why your claim has been delayed and work to get the process moving again.
Why Your Workers’ Compensation Claim May Be Delayed
Even if your employer isn’t intentionally delaying your benefits payments, there are several reasons for a possible delay. These include, but are not limited to:
- Inaccurate physician diagnosis
- A suspected pre-existing condition caused the injury
- The employee failed to report the injury properly or on time
- The employee did not seek appropriate medical care
- Insufficient evidence
You Can’t Wait for Compensation
If you are out of work due to a legitimate injury, it’s highly likely that you can’t afford to go without income for very long. The last thing you need is additional stress while you focus on your recovery. Delayed claims often force people to go back to work before they are physically ready, which can cause worsened medical conditions later.
Furthermore, many employers and their insurance carriers purposefully delay payment of benefits in the hope that the injured employee will become impatient or desperate and drop the claim altogether. This is wrong, and we can help you make it right.
