What happens if the workers’ compensation carrier is inconsistent and does not pay my benefits on time?
Employers and workers’ compensation insurance carriers must pay any claims promptly and expeditiously. If claims are not paid on time, then the Department of Worker’s Claims will fine the employers and/or the insurance companies responsible. Not paying out compensation promptly or at all is a violation of the Unfair Claims Settlement Practices Act.
