Can an adjuster just close my file?

This may, or may not come as a shock to the adjuster but the answer is “absolutely not.” While she may think that enough has been done it is up to the treating doctor to say that you don’t need any more medical treatment. Even then, the adjuster must ask the Industrial Commission to sign off on closing your claim. If that has not happened your claim is still open regardless of what the adjuster may be telling you. There are deadlines and technicalities involved in this so it’s wise to give us a call and let us point you in the right direction.
