“Do I have a case?” is a common question in Arkansas workers’ compensation law. Just being injured on the job is rough enough. But then an insurance adjuster comes calling, followed by “official” looking forms in the mailbox. Sometimes a benefit check in some strange amount arrives, and sometimes one doesn’t. Doctors’ appointments are scheduled, or the claim is just outright denied, without much explanation at all.
The answer is yes, you may very well have a case. In fact, it my be a significant workers’ compensation case that involves or has the potential to involve maximum damages under our Workers’ Compensation Law. It is doubtful, however, that an insurance company is ever going to tell you this.
At Hart Law, we will.
