Why Would A Workers’ Compensation Claim Be Denied?

Workers’ compensation claims can be denied for a number of reasons. Sometimes, claims are denied for reasons related to how the claim was filed. There are specific processes that must be followed to file a workers’ compensation claim, and the steps that must be taken to file a claim must be completed with a specific time period. If any of these responsibilities are not met by a claimant, their claim can be denied.

In other instances, workers’ compensation claims are denied because the insurance company says that the claim is not viable. For example, the employer may claim that the employee’s injuries are not work-related. Or, they may claim that the employee’s injuries are less severe than they said. These reasons may not necessarily be true and can be grounds for an appeal of the denied claim.

What To Do If Your Workers’ Compensation Claim is Denied

If your workers’ compensation claim has been denied, it is crucial to get in touch with an attorney as soon as possible. We can evaluate your specific situation to find the best way to move forward and work toward getting your benefits.

You should get all of the information you can about why your claim was denied. The reasons for your claim denial will be what your case is based on. You will need to contradict the reasons cited by your employer and their workers’ compensation insurance company to get your benefits. You should also collect all evidence you have about your injuries, the cause of your injuries, your treatment, and any communication you have had with your employer about your claim.

How To Appeal A Denied Workers’ Compensation Claim

A claim denial does not mean that you can never receive workers’ compensation benefits. It is possible to appeal a denial and recover the benefits you deserve.

Appealing a claim is the typical next step after a denial. Appeals are presented in hearings in front of the state workers’ compensation board. During the hearing, you and your employer will each present cases, and a judge will reach a verdict on if the claim is viable and if benefits can be provided.
