I recently had an experience where a client called me and told me his workers’ compensation insurance carrier had sent him some forms to sign and send back. Whoa! Big red flag there. First of all, once an individual has an attorney, all communication must go through that attorney. Neither the insurance company nor any representative can directly contact the represented client.
Secondly, the client may have no idea of the legal ramifications of what he/she is signing. Simply put, once you have an attorney, never talk to the insurance company or a representative of an insurance company. Let your attorney handle it.
