What is a Work Comp Adjuster?

The Workers’ Compensation Insurance Company hires adjusters to oversee injury claims.

One part of the job is to make sure the claim is taken care of in a timely manner.

Another important part of their job is to keep costs under control.

The adjuster is the gatekeeper.

The adjuster approves medical treatment.

The adjuster pays temporary total disability.

The adjuster authorizes the Work Comp settlement.

The adjuster decides whether to hire an attorney, and who to hire.

The problem often is that the adjuster is not responsive.

They will not return phone calls or emails.

They are either overworked or not doing their job.

A unresponsive adjuster can be very damaging to your case.

The only way to deal with such an adjuster is to file a motion to go to trial.

Even this does not guarantee fast results.
