Appeal a denied workers' compensation claim

If your workers' compensation claim has been denied, it can make you frustrated and leave you feeling like you have no way to access the money you need. Workplace injuries are usually covered by your employer's workers' compensation insurance, and when you're hurt at work, it should kick in to help you pay for the medical costs associated with your injury among other financial losses. 

If your workers' compensation claim has been denied, it can make you frustrated and leave you feeling like you have no way to access the money you need. Workplace injuries are usually covered by your employer's workers' compensation insurance, and when you're hurt at work, it should kick in to help you pay for the medical costs associated with your injury among other financial losses.

Sometimes, claims are denied, and there can be several reasons for that. The first is that your employer is disputing your claim. Maybe he or she believes the accident took place outside work or as a result of horseplay; in those cases, he or she wouldn't need to cover the cost of your care through his or her insurance. Maybe you didn't seek medical treatment. In most situations, you have to seek medical care to qualify for workers' compensation benefits.

If there is little evidence to support that you got injured at work, then that can result in a denial. However, you can get another medical exam and provide further evidence to help get your claim approved.

If your injury wasn't reported on time or you failed to file a claim in time, that will also affect your case and can lead to a denial. You typically have 30 to 90 days to file a claim.

Your attorney can help you review the reasons behind your denial, so you can work toward a resolution. You deserve to receive compensation for any injury you suffer at work, and you shouldn't have to fight against an employer who wants to deny you access to compensation that is rightfully yours.
