What to Do if Your Employer Threatens You After Filing a

Workers’ Compensation Claim

Suffering an on-the-job injury can be both physically and

emotionally painful. Sometimes employers may subtly

threaten to make your life difficult if you suggest getting

lawyer involved. Workers’ Compensation is a provision

design to help those who have been hurt to receive prompt

medical care and lost wages.

What Insurance Companies May Do

Workers’ Compensation is not perfect, which usually means

injured workers will most likely encounter some bumps along

the road to both physical and financial recovery. Insurance

companies may reluctantly recommend you see a specialist

who may then downplay your injury.

The doctor may refuse to run various tests that would help treat your condition. Doctors may even insist

that you return to work even though you are far from recovering and still in pain. Sometimes things

escalate to a point where you have no choice but to get lawyers involved.

What Happens When An Attorney Steps In?

While not all Workers’ Compensation claims require attorneys, there are some instances where hiring an

attorney will help to reduce some of the stress and worry that you have about receiving proper care and

compensation. For example, if you are suffering from a serious physical injury that will require a lot of

therapy and rest you may want to get a lawyer involved if your employer is insisting that you return to

work immediately.

Anticipate A Change In Your Employer’s Attitude

Do not become alarmed once your employer’s attitude towards you changes once you become injured.

Your employer may be skeptical of your injury and even result to hiring an investigator to track your

every move and make sure that you are not off on some cruise in the Caribbean. Your employer will look

for any activity to negate your claim so it is important not to abuse the system.

There are many options available for those who have been injured on the job. A red flag should be raised

if your employer does not want to discuss workers compensation but wants you to return to work

immediately. If you feel that your employer may try to take advantage of you while you are already in a

weakened state seek the help of legal counsel immediately from our Long Island Workers’

Compensation attorney.
