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.
