Coye Law Worker's Comp November 2018

Disabled Veterans, Are You Struggling with the VA?

What a “Denial for Benefits” letter looks like. How to appeal a denied claim, and much more ...

As a veteran myself, and a squared away attorney who has helped hundreds of veterans with their disability claims, I know firsthand just how drawn out the process can be. I realized that many veterans do not have access to solid, honest information about veterans’ disability benefits and I wanted to change that. So I wrote the book on it, “Standby to Standby: Why Your Veteran Benefits Are Taking So Long and What You Can Do About It.”

Review from Amazon.com: “This book is simply outstanding. I really wish this book was available years ago. I now have a better understanding on how to deal with my VA Claim. I can not even begin to tell you how important this book is to us veterans either in the beginning or the middle of dealing with the VA compensation department. I have gained valuable knowledge after reading this book.” – Joe, Amazon Book Review

After all, the better you understand the system, the quicker you can receive the benefits you deserve.

From “Standby to Standby” you will learn … • Five things you can do to move your case along faster. • Why it takes so long to receive a decision. • Six tips for writing an email to your congressman and/or senator about your claim. • How to create and authenticate your eBenefits account. • What an “Awarded Benefits” letter looks like.

3 Shocking and Legal Tactics That Workers’ Compensation Insurers Use Against You

2. Hire an Investigator to Spy on You

When it comes to workers’ compensation cases, most people wrongfully assume that their battle is with their employer. In the vast majority of cases, though, your actual adversary is the workers’ comp insurance company used by your employer. While all but the most devious employers act in good faith to protect their employees, the same cannot be said of the insurance companies. You should never consider the workers’ comp insurance company an entity that is representing your interests and giving you a full range of options and benefits. Their goal is always to pay out as little money as possible, and they’ll go to whatever measures necessary to do so. In fact, you might be shocked to learn three perfectly legal techniques that insurance companies use to poke holes in workers’ comp claims. This one may seem innocent enough, but it’s hiding devious intentions. Many insurance companies would have you believe that having you provide a recorded statement is a routine part of the workers’ compensation claims process. It’s not. You are under no obligation to provide such a statement, and it will almost certainly be used against you. If you’re even asked to make a statement, it’s time to call an attorney. 1. Ask You for a Recorded Statement

No kidding. Insurance companies hire private investigators to spy on injured workers all the time. These investigators will go so far as to interview your neighbors and record surveillance. They’ll look for anything that could serve as evidence to deny your claim, like catching you raking leaves or lifting a package. As creepy and intrusive as this is, it’s perfectly legal, and there’s nothing you can do to stop it. The biggest shock to many employees is discovering that the workers’ compensation system is not designed to get you well. The insurance company doesn’t want you to see the best doctors or receive the best care. Instead, they want to provide the bare minimum in order to cover their asses. The best defense against these dirty tricks is to hire an experienced workers’ compensation attorney who will protect your rights and advise you on the best course of action. Call us today at 407-901-2712 to find out how we can help. 3. Provide the Bare Minimum in Care
