Is OWCP Making Your Life Difficult?

Federal Workers' Compensation

You may not know this if you’re a new applicant, but filing a federal workers’ compensation claim can put you in the line of fire of some very adversarial administrative practices that OWCP and the Department of Labor have been using for the last 2 decades. Something that’s supposed to help injured workers get back on their feet and receive adequate compensation should they decide to move on to retirement or other lighter jobs has become the bane of may injured federal workers’ existences.

OWCP – The Hydra-Headed Monster

Right out the gate, DOL’s OWCP tries it best to shoot down any and all claims. First, it’s not common knowledge, but this federal labor and compensatory body usually views applicants are fraudulent individuals looking for a free ride. Their website is rarely updated, and instead of helpful information, they set up roadblocks for you and me by uploading tomes of PDF documents whose pages number in the thousands so you are frustrated and give up on finding out the right answers for your situation.

When it comes to medical reports and exams, they like to send would-be claimants to doctors approved by them so they can manipulate the outcome. Even when the doctor’s report is objective yet favorable, they will reject their findings which is counterintuitive since this federal agency’s role is to resolve these types of medical issues from the beginning. They also have a history of not assisting injured workers when it comes to finding OWCP-approved doctors despite them having a detailed database on the same.

OWCP – Delays, And More Delays

OWCP has been known to delay or not send documentation to attorneys representing injured workers, choosing to play the cat and mouse game with all parties involved. On top of that, some of their claims decisions are done using not the documents attorneys provide showing the abundance of evidence pointing to their client’s injuries, but using their own information or documents. Lastly, OWCP has historically been known to ignore the 3-day time limit to respond to calls by letting it expire and then resetting the time limit once the same person calls back to check on their request.
