Workers’ compensation denied? Appeal with the right help

Posted by Tony Brock | Apr 10, 2019 | 0 Comments

Workers' compensation is about more than protecting a company from liability. It's also about making sure people are able to receive benefits in the case that they're hurt while performing their jobs. Regardless of the cause of the injuries, most people will have their claims approved.

There are some cases where a claim may be denied. If that's the situation that you're facing, then you'll want to know why the claim was denied and the steps to take to reverse that denial. Most denied claims are rejected as a result of:

  • Not reporting the injury in a timely manner
  • Not filing a claim soon enough
  • An employer disputing the claim
  • Not receiving medical treatment
  • Poor evidence that the injury was caused by work

There may be other reasons that your claim was denied, but these are among the most common.

What should you do if your claim is denied?

If your workers' compensation claim is denied, then your attorney can help you appeal that denial. It is a possibly complicated legal process, but it's easy to get through with the assistance of someone who is familiar with the law.

To successfully appeal your claim's denial, you'll need to show:

  • Medical records
  • Evidence that you were working at the time of the injury
  • A second medical evaluation that also agrees that the injury was related to your job
  • Time sheets

Essentially, submit anything you can that backs up your case.
