In a Worker’s Compensation case there are many factors that are beyond all of our control. For example there are certain insurance companies that are much easier to work with than others. You have no control over that. Your employer has hired an insurance carrier and paid the premium and that’s the one that we have to deal with. In addition to that there are judges who are easier to work with than other judges. There are some judges that are more, that lean more toward a working person than an employer. There are others that lean more toward the employer than the working person. So these factors are beyond our control but what isn’t beyond our control is to know these things through experience and to account for them in prosecuting your particular claim.
