Many employers account for the work. comp. high cost expenses because employers deny medical treatment when employees reported work injury on time. A research done by work comp. office shows that more than 90% of employee who recieve work comp benefits are denied by their employers to get medical treatment when the injury is reported on time. The injury claim is filed after sometime when the injury is already getting bad or worst.
Therefore, as employees are punished when they make a fraud, employers shuld be also penalized when they reject honest injury report. That way, the expenses for medical treatment may reduce when there is medication provided on time by the employers. Please, let us pass a law to punish employers who creates problems by denying work injury and make employes' health condition worst, and as a result who make medical expenses very high.

Moreover, the employers' doctors creat problems by denying or minimizing employees injury and that is why some employers' advocaters want to control employees medical treatment. Therefore, employees and employers should have equal right to go to a doctor of their own choice from the time the injury is reported.

"INJURED EMPLOYEES SHOULD GET THE RIGHT TREATMENT AND COMPENSATON!!"

I've adjusted claims the last 15 years and there is no workers'comp crisis on my caseload because I have invented a new adjusting method. The injured is required to make 100% effort at self-help. For example the dr asks for 12 Massage therapy for the back. I say OK but it needs to lead to a gym exercise program at a physical therapy office where attendance and compliance is monitored. If the injured refuses then that refusal creates a legal basis for terminating medical treatment and TD even! Once the injureds realize that treatment is no longer a walk in the park, they settle their claim for reasonable costs and get a job and move on with their lives!
