Our tongue-in-cheek candy suggestions for people involved in your workers’ compensation case.
Two years ago we blogged about scary people who might be involved in your workers’ compensation case. We offered several snarky suggestions for Halloween costumes. These included a Dr. Frankenstein mask for the physician who performs the independent medical examination along with a Jekyll and Hyde costume for the insurance adjuster.
Last year we offered up candy suggestions for these individuals and thought it would be fun to revisit that blog. Here is our updated list of candy suggestions for people involved in your workers’ compensation case.
Sour patch kids for insurance adjusters
Our clients tell us that insurance adjusters are very sweet at the start of a claim but get sour as time progresses. Medical treatment gets delayed, checks go missing, and telephone calls are not returned. The adjuster just wants to close the claim.
Tootsie rolls for nurse case managers
Tootsie rolls have little substance and can hurt your teeth if not chewed carefully. Nurse case managers hired by insurance companies interfere with medical care and attempt to manipulate work restrictions. This is done to save money at your expense.
Nerds for doctors who perform independent medical examinations
This candy appears delicious but is not what it seems. It tastes like sugar coated gravel after a few bites. Doctors hired by insurance companies are not what they seem either. They make a career out of testifying for insurance companies and do not have your best interests at heart.
Orange & black toffee for vocational rehabilitation counselors
This is the worst Halloween candy to pass out and most people throw them away. The same applies to vocational rehabilitation counselors who are hired to perform wage earning capacity assessments. These reports serves no purpose except to cut-off benefits.
Loose pennies for defense attorneys
Defense attorneys are like the cheapskate neighbor down the street. He won’t pass out any candy but will give you a few loose pennies to go away.
