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. The reason for this downplay has two reasons. First, economically, it’s cheaper to pay for a strain, sprain, or contusion than it is for a break, herniated disc, or concussion. Second, medically, 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.
