Michigan workers comp lawyer tells you to unplug while your claim is pending. Find out the reasons why insurance companies deny a claim.

It’s no secret that insurance companies have been following people for years. Private investigators conduct video surveillance and check daily activities. This could even include talking to neighbors under false pretenses.

This is simply a way to deny legitimate claims and it’s often taken out of context. Just because you went to the grocery store or took your kids to the park does not mean you can work full-time.

The Internet is a new frontier in this war against claimants. Here are some reasons why you should unplug while you workers comp claim is pending.

E-mail

Dealing with claims adjusters can be extremely difficult. Our clients tell us about being treated unfairly and many don’t even get return telephone calls. This can be extremely upsetting when medical treatment has not been authorized or wage loss checks are missing.

Many people resort to sending an e-mail with their complaints. Resist this urge because you never know when an innocent comment could get you into major trouble.

Have all correspondence with the claims adjuster reviewed by your lawyer. E-mail is real and it doesn’t simply disappear when you press delete.

Social media

Facebook and other social media websites are routinely searched for evidence that a claim is not legitimate. We have seen some claims adjusters make sudden decisions just because of what is posted.

Stay off Facebook and Twitter because it is simply not worth the risk. Never post anything online discussing your case or complaining how you have been treated. This could end up being used against you at trial.

Vent your frustrations

Getting advice from the Internet is a bad idea. Every case is different and must be handled in a specific way. Most workers comp lawyers will be happy to discuss your case free of charge.
