How Insurance Companies Harass Injured Workers
Filing a valid workers’ compensation claim and getting approved for benefits is sometimes just the beginning of a very difficult, uncertain time period. Many work comp insurers are extremely active not only in looking for reasons to deny claims, but also in monitoring people currently receiving benefits and raising obstacles that impede recovery and create even more stress.
At The Law Offices of John M. McCabe, P.A., led by a widely respected, highly rated North Carolina workers’ comp and personal injury attorney, we stand up for people when they face insurance company harassment in its many forms. A lawyer at our firm can take action for you when you face problems such as:
- Refusals to authorize payment for reasonably necessary medical care, including surgical procedures, physical therapy sessions, prescriptions and more
- Lengthy delays in issuing weekly benefit checks
- Unreasonable demands for visits with independent medical examiners (IMEs) in the effort to gather opinions enabling termination of benefits
- Surveillance, including being followed and videotaped by investigators assigned to gather evidence that can be used against you

Our attorneys know workers’ compensation laws in-depth, including insurer obligations and the lines they cannot legally cross.
