I am a workers comp insurance adjuster and have been doing it for more than 10 years. I have gotten to the point that my job disgusts me. While there are people with legitimate work injuries who are unable to work, it seems more and more that people are using workers comp as the new welfare system. They don't want to go back to work and just want to stay home and collect tax free benefits. Workers comp was meant to supplement your income while u were recovering from an injury that happened while at work. And yes, there are real cases where the people are injured permanently and ARE unable to return to work. But even though u might not be able to do the work u did before, doesn't mean u can't work at a different job. Im just really frustrated withit, and while im happy to have a job, its disheartening to see the crap that goes on and see how NY state allows this to continue. (Yes I live and work in NY. This state is horrible). Do any if u know anyone who is abusing workers comp?
