Don’t Leave Your Future Unprotected

August 18, 2013, by Michael A. DeMayo

One of the most confusing concepts to understand regarding an at-work injury is the future damages that are currently unrecognized. The workers compensation claims differ from auto accident claims in regards to medical expenses and lost future wages that may be unknown at the moment.

To an injured person this can be quite difficult to grasp because it may feel like you’re just speculating about the potential costs the at-work injury will carry. For this reason, it is very important that you contact an attorney who handles workers compensation cases regularly and understands how to forecast future losses based on market data and issues specific to you to reconcile a reasonable demand.

Naturally, the workers comp insurer will tell you no—and that you “pulled that number out of the sky.” At this point in dealings with the insurance company, what do you tell them? How do you back up or justify your demand for losses that haven’t actually occurred?
