What Do Workers’ Comp Claims Administrators Do?

Workers' Compensation

A workers’ compensation case can be very confusing, especially if you’ve never had to file a claim like this before. Part of the process will be talking to a workers’ comp claims administrator. What is this person’s role in your case? Get the facts from a workers’ comp lawyer at Burnette & Payne Attorneys:

What does a workers’ compensation claims administrator do?

Claims administrators handle workers’ comp claims for the company charged with the claim. Once an administrator is assigned to your case, they’ll want to meet with you to discuss the incident in full detail. They’ll specifically want to know details about your injury and any medical treatment you received following the accident.

How much information should I share?

When talking with a claims administrator, be cautious with what you say. Statements you make could be distorted to hurt your claim. This could prevent you from getting a good settlement offer.

Should I talk with a workers’ comp lawyer first?

We highly advise that you meet with an attorney before speaking with a claims administrator. Your lawyer will advise you on what you should and shouldn’t say. They can also serve as an advocate, talking with the administrator on your behalf.
