Why Do Insurance Companies Always Downplay Injuries

Could you imagine getting your finger chopped off and having an insurance company list it as a middle finger scratch. How about breaking your arm and the insurance company listing it as a forearm contusion. Workers Compensation Insurance Companies almost always try to downplay an injury. This servestwo purposes. The first purpose economic : its cheaper to pay for a strain, sprain or contusion than it is for a break, herniated disc or concussion. The second purpose is medical: its easier for the panel doctor or company doctor to say you are fully recovered from a sprain, strain or contusion than if they actually diagnosed what is truly wrong with you.
