about to file a worker's comp claim. do we need coaching on that?
MD did write a note saying she can't work before Monday. This particular Doc's office says they don't write workers comp notes.
An insurance broker we know says to go into the front door of the HR office and file a workers comp claim and ask about benefits. Help!
Joseph, thank you again. Her MD indeed said she shouldn't work until Monday.
My layman's understanding is that stress related claims can be difficult to substantiate and most company doctors will push back. Not to put the cart before the horse, but then do we need to find for a doc who will?
Is it very risky to hire an attorney to find a doc (our first 2 inquiries say they NEVER write workers comp letters!) to potentially prevail vs. value of benefits for 7 months remaining in school year?
Please educate us!
Sorry for lack of clarity. Are worker's comp attorneys only contingency? Seems that there is some risk in paying an attorney and losing a claim "hard to prove and prevail upon"
If her contract is for 7 more months this school year, what is her economic upside with the benefit?
