Should I talk to an insurance adjuster?

Always be careful when you talk to insurance adjusters or nurse case managers. Remember that they work for an insurance company – not for you.

You may come across workers’ compensation adjusters who may, among other things, delay or deny medical treatment or attempt to control which doctor you see. Adjusters may also delay or deny payments to you if you miss work. If this occurs, you should immediately call our office to determine if these actions are against Nebraska law.

You have a duty to cooperate with adjusters and medical providers. Always be polite when talking to an adjuster or nurse; if you do not cooperate, you may lose your benefits. But remember, it is your duty to find out what laws apply and whether your employer and insurance company are providing the proper injury benefits. Do not expect the insurance company adjuster to tell you about your compensation rights.

As your attorney, I will make sure that you get the best possible treatment under Nebraska law. I will also make sure that all of your medical expenses are properly paid. Call for a free consultation to discuss your particular case. There’s no obligation.
