http://www.joedibartolomeo.com/ After being injured on the job, you will have to wait to find out if your employer’s insurance company decides to accept or deny your claim. If your case is accepted, you will receive a Notice of Acceptance letter, which is the most important document in your claims file.
There are two reasons why you need to pay special attention to the information listed in the Notice of Acceptance letter. First, the notice will list the accepted medical condition the insurance company will provide benefits for. Unfortunately, insurers have been known to omit medical conditions or list incorrect medical conditions in the notification. It is important that the correct medical condition be listed so that you do not get cheated out of any benefits you are entitled to. It is also critical that you pay attention to the classification the insurance company has your injury listed as. In Oregon, your work-related injury could be labeled as disabling or non-disabling. If your injury is not listed correctly, it could affect your workers’ compensation benefits.
To request the insurance company make changes to your medical condition or classification of your claim, make sure you have a knowledgeable lawyer representing you at your hearing.
