If you received a Notice of Dispute from Workers Compensation and you aren’t sure what it means, you are among many other confused recipients wanting answers. Fortunately, our workers compensation attorneys at Aiello Law Group have them – and more.
A Notice of Dispute is a state form that must legally be sent to individuals as a proclamation of terminated workers compensation benefits, including medical treatment and wage loss benefits. A person may receive a Notice of Dispute or have their workers compensation benefits stopped at any time over a variety of reasons such as late notices, findings of misconduct, or even preexisting conditions. However, in some cases, a Notice of Dispute may not be in regards to anything you’ve done at all, but rather the result of an insurance company’s attempt to utilize a biased independent medical examiner (IME) report to reduce their own accountability. At Aiello Law Group, we believe that anyone who needs and qualifies for workers compensation benefits should always have access to them.
Wage loss benefits, for instance, are just one of many monetary lifelines that must remain attainable to the people who need them – regardless of what an insurance company may claim. Wage loss benefits can help injured workers pay bills and live normal lives throughout recovery by providing them with 80% of their average weekly income after taxes. Medical treatment benefits are another example, ensuring that injured workers are able to receive the medical treatment they desperately need at no cost and without any co-pays or deductibles. Without these, and other similar financial benefits, injured employees who should be taken care of are forced to struggle even to receive basic care and maintain their normal lives. This is unacceptable, which is why if you have received a Notice of Dispute and are perplexed or worried about your physical and/or fiscal future, we encourage you to seek professional legal advice from our workers compensation attorneys at Aiello Law Group.
