The key is to anticipate and plan

Plan ahead for workers' compensation is like flying a plane Anticipate for clouds when flying

When flying it is important to plan for contingencies, things can happen and you have to be prepared.  Unexpected weather can pop up, other airplanes can appear, mechanical problems can develop and as pilot in command you have to be ready to address each issue. The same is true in a workers’ compensation case. Unexpected witnesses can suddenly offer testimony that can be damaging; medical experts hired by the insurance company can offer opinions which can block the claim, and legal procedures can be used to delay a claim and as the employee’s attorney you have to be ready to address each of these issues.  The key is anticipate and plan for all that may happen.
