Was Your Workers’ Compensation Claim Denied?
You got hurt at work. You told the truth about it and asked for workers’ compensation benefits. Your claim was denied. You are not alone. Many injured workers are denied compensation simply because the system is extremely complex. The most important thing to know is that a denied or disallowed claim is not the end of the road.
Additional steps can be taken to challenge the denial. At Philip J. Fulton Law Office, we know those steps well. Over the course of more than 35 years, we have helped countless injured workers fight denials to get the compensation they need.
Fast Action Is Important
If you received a formal written order in the mail denying your workers’ comp claim, you have probably read it over. You have seen the medical evidence they used as the basis for their denial and it just does not seem right. It might not be.
You have the right to appeal the decision. However, there is a deadline. It may be as little as 10 days, so you must act quickly. Our lawyers will make certain that deadlines are met.
Preparation is crucial in work comp appeals. We will thoroughly review all the paperwork involved in your case. We will work with your doctor as necessary. Many doctors, as well-intentioned as they may be, often provide documentation that leads to denials. We will make certain all documentation is accurate and clearly presents the necessary information as we prepare for a hearing with the Industrial Commission of Ohio.
At the appeal hearing, which takes place before a hearing officer, you have the right to have an attorney with you. Your employer will be represented, so it makes sense that you be, too. You can count on us.
