Dirty insurance company tactics: adding insult to injury

Dirty insurance company tactics: adding insult to injury

It is hoped that The Age's recent report into the conduct of WorkSafe Authorised insurers gives rise to sorely-needed cultural shifts and increased accountability among insurers. Each day, our lawyers help injured workers whose lives are being made even more difficult by insurers who deny them income and/or vital medical treatment - often on dubious grounds. It is quick and simple for an insurer to reject or terminate an injured worker's entitlements. Often, the insurer relies on a single so-called'independent' medical opinion to support its decision, even in cases where the overwhelming balance of medical evidence points the other way. By contrast, it can often be a slow, complex process to get a worker's entitlements reinstated. But these entitlements are worth pursuing. Frustratingly, many workers who receive an insurer decision denying benefits do not even think to challenge it or obtain legal advice. At Adviceline Injury Lawyers, our team of expert lawyers are passionate about helping injured workers obtain fair compensation for their injuries. If you or someone you know has been injured at work, it is important to get the right advice. To book your free appointment, call us today on (03) 9321 9988.
