Who Is Calling?

who is calling

Sometimes it’s important to ask who is calling, right.  In a recent ProPublica article, the insane world of the vendors for workers’ compensation claims is explored.  If you are hurt at work you are just thinking that you need medical treatment.  You probably never think about all of the parties involved.  Who is calling me?  Who is trying to take a piece of the “pie” so to speak?  Unfortunately, all of these people result in too many “cooks in the kitchen.”  Instead of facilitating claims, this can make things even more difficult.

Middlemen

Specifically, there are middlemen involved such as people to manage the claims, negotiate medical bills (none of which an injured worker should have to deal with”.  However, there are also many intermediaries such as scheduling services, nurse case managers, transportation services, etc.  In one particular claim, I have there is a nurse case manager involved who are dealing with One Call (who schedules appointments), who then calls the separate transportation company.  This is not to mention the adjuster handling the claim and the injured worker’s attorney (myself).  So something as simple as getting a prescription authorized or transportation provided has to go through four different channels.  How does this make this easier on the injured worker?  In short, it doesn’t.

For more information on nurse case managers, read this article.

Workers’ Compensation Claim

If you have filed a workers’ compensation claim, do not be surprised if you are contacted by a service that is trying to schedule your appointments, arrange transportation, etc.  While these are supposed to facilitate the claims I find that more often than not the more people involved with a claim, the more confusion results. Unfortunately, in Georgia, we cannot always refuse their services so please consult an attorney immediately if you are contacted.

Would have given her 10 stars if possible!

Highly recommend Beth for WC claims! I was ALWAYS able to talk to her when I called and she responded to my emails very quickly. She was able to get us a very fair amount and did not just tell us what we wanted to hear, she was very honest! Would have given her 10 stars if possible!

I would highly recommend Beth to anyone needed a Workers Compensation Lawyer.

From the moment I called Beth, I knew I had made the right decision. She returned my initial phone call very promptly and was sensitive to my case and situation. I had an injury in Georgia, but live in New York so the case was complicated and unique. I found her to be extremely knowledgeable about Georgia Workers Compensation laws which is what I needed assistance with. I would highly recommend Beth to anyone needed a Workers Compensation Lawyer.

It turned out to be the best decision I have made in a long, long time.

I got injured at work. Trying to deal with the insurance company became overwhelming mainly because I needed surgery and they would not respond to my calls or emails. I researched local attorneys and decided to choose Gearhart Law Group mainly because it was smaller, I liked the information I read and I felt I might get more individual attention. It turned out to be the best decision I have made in a long, long time. Beth Gearhart made me feel as though I were her only client. She responded to my emails immediately, every time. She explained the whole process from the beginning and everything unfolded exactly as she explained it would. The process took time but I received the surgery I needed and in the end was very surprised by the large financial settlement I received due to Ms. Gearhart’s expertise. I highly recommend Gearhart Law Group.
