Injured workers often ask me what it means if their employer is self‐insured. Self‐insured companies are normally larger corporations that are able to fund their own Workers Compensation systems.
By doing this, they are able to add their own level of bureaucracy, where they get to make the initial decisions, before the decisions can come in front of the Workers Compensation system. This can add a lot of complexities to an individual’s workers compensation.
So, if your employer is self‐insured, it’s very important that you get somebody involved, who really knows how to deal with the system. At the Harris Firm, we have a lot of experience dealing with self‐insured employers.
So, if you need help moving your claim forward, we know the steps to take, to deal with these employers, and give you the benefits that you deserve.
