The same stands for worker’s compensation benefits. While most employers provide workers compensation benefits to their employees, they sometimes create a dispute. The one big reason for that is money. It is an expense for the employer.

High Insurance Premium Costs:

High Insurance Premium Costs As premium costs go high, so do the costs for employers. The insurance premium goes significantly high when there are more workers compensation claims than expected or forecasted. Also, in case there is an expensive claim such as a surgery for a certain worker that can make the insurance premium skyrocket high. Therefore, insurance companies and employers keep a constant check on the activities of the claimant and find ways to create dispute until solid proof is given. This is done to avoid paying high premiums.

Employer Prejudice :

Employer Prejudice Some employers, in order to keep away from paying hefty amounts in workers compensation claims try to deny the workers benefits. They presume that the worker is exaggerating or telling half truths about their condition. Employer prejudice is most common in cases where the claimant files for injuries that are hard to prove, such as internal injuries, extreme muscular pains, depression due to work environments, etc. They dispute the claim for financial benefits and to avoid paying hefty amounts in compensation.
