>CNN Story On How Insurance Companies Make Money By Denying Or Fighting Your Claim

>Here is a link to the CNN story on you tube. I see this every week in my representation of injured workers in Pennsylvania – legitimate claims that are denied. While you are suffering without pay and mounting medical bills, the insurers are getting rich investing the money that should be in your pocket.

Absolutely disgusting.

>I Received These Forms In The Mail From The Insurance Company Asking Me About My Work Status and Physical Condition- Do I Have To Fill Them Out?

>Yes. These are LIBC forms and the insurers send them out from time to time to inquire about your working status and physical condition. If you fail to fill out and return these forms within 30 days, your benefits may be suspended. The insurance companies have a right to know if you are working because they’re entitled to a credit for any actual wages you may be receiving. Likewise, if your physical condition has changed, they want to, and have a right to, know about this.

If you have any questions about the forms, please feel free to call me. (215) 206-9068. Or email me at mcardamone@krasno.com

>My Injury Was Described As A Strain/Sprain- But It’s More Than That- What Should I Do?

>Call me!

Work injuries are often minimized on the Notice of Compensation Payable document. An insurer only has 21 days to accept or deny a claim once notice is given by the injured worker in Pennsylvania. Consequently, the description of the injury is often a “sprain/strain”. Of course, an insurer is not going to voluntarily accept a more serious diagnosis, especially when the medical evidence and treatment has not been developed much at such an early stage.

If you believe your injury was improperly described, call me and I will explain your options for challenging the defintion of your injury. There are a few options and timing is very important. For example, if your employer is alleging that you’re fully recovered, or that you have an earning power based on a labor market survey or an actual job offer, you can challenge the description of the injury at that time since you’ll be in court anyway for litigation.

Do not hesitate to call (215) 206-9068) or email me (mcardamone@krasno.com) because you may be running out of time for which you are entitled to file a petition to challenge the definition.
