What you tell your doctors and nurses at the time you are hurt does matter.

What you tell the Work Comp Insurance Adjuster at the time of your injury does matter.

The medical records and recorded statements have a big impact on your Work Comp Settlement.

People have told me that the doctor got it wrong in his notes, but what the Arbitrator looks at is what the medical records contain.

I tell injured workers not to give a recorded statement to the Work Comp insurance adjuster. However, sometimes people do not get a lawyer until later.

If you gave a recorded statement it can be used against you.

Your accident can be denied based on what is in the medical records or the recorded statement.
