Why Is My Workers’ Compensation Case Taking So Long?

Why Is My Workers’ Compensation Case Taking So Long?

The workers’ compensation process can be burdensome and lengthy, leading many injured workers to question why their attorneys are taking such a long time to conclude their case, blaming them for all the delays. Workers’ compensation attorneys have the exact same frustrations as their clients. There is very little control attorneys have over the notoriously complex and anti-worker legal framework that is California workers’ compensation.

So just what is taking so long? The delay can be due to several different things. Here are some of the reasons:

  • The delay could be with the insurance company, who may assign your file to an overworked team that may not even be staffed with an insurance adjuster or is tasked with figuring out how best to reject your workers’ compensation claim.
  • The delay could be with the doctor, who may be taking a while to provide necessary medical reports. The doctor that your employer sends you to owe their livelihood to the insurance companies, therefore they tend to have the insurance company’s best interest in mind. On the other hand, the team of doctors the law firm uses has proven to have the best interest of the injured worker in mind.
  • The delay could even be with the court system, which does not have nearly enough resources to handle the massive amount of appeals from legitimate claims that were denied.

So as you can see there are a number of things that can delay a workers’ compensation case. That is why you need an experienced workers’ compensation law firm like Perona, Langer, Beck, Serbin and Harrison on your side. Our dedicated attorneys have been helping injured workers navigate the maze of workers’ compensation law for decades.
