Workers' Compensation: What to Know About Claim Investigations
When one gets injured at work, it is easy for them to assume that the insurance company will immediately pay for the medical expenses and lost wages. In most cases, this is what happens, and most employees don't have to drag the insurance company to court. However, there are instances when the insurance company will ask for an investigation into the claims before settling the matter. They assign a private investigator or one from their firm to look into the claim and ascertain whether it is valid.
