Insurance companies are in the business of making money. When it comes time for them to make a payment to someone in need of their services, we often find that insurance providers are stingy and think more about their bottom lines than they do about the people in their care.
Insurance disputes can be extremely tricky to settle because of all the legal red tape involved between an insurance provider, the employer, and the employee. If you have been injured in a work-related accident and your insurance company is refusing to adequately compensate you for your injuries, give the Indianapolis insurance dispute lawyers at Wagner Reese a call. We can show them how serious you are about getting the money you deserve.

How Employers & Insurance Providers Try to Deny Claims
Saving money is the primary reason that liable employers and insurance providers try to dispute work comp claims. However, an employer may dispute a claim based on personal bias or the (often false) belief that your injuries are not valid or covered by work comp.
They may try to dispute or deny your claim by saying:
- Your injuries were minor
- You were not injured while at work/within the scope of your employment
- Your injuries are not serious enough to warrant medical attention
- Your injuries do not prevent you from coming to work
Essentially, these are all attempts to prove that your injuries are not covered by workers’ compensation but in most cases, this is simply not true. If you believe that your employer or your employer’s insurance provider has unjustly denied or devalued your claim, contact our firm as soon as possible. Our Indianapolis workers’ compensation attorneys can help you understand your legal rights and fight for the full, fair compensation you are owed.
