Workers' Comp Attorney Handling Denials
About Workers' Comp Denials
When someone is injured on the job, most employees expect they will be covered by their employer's workers' compensation coverage. Their expectation is that they will be able to be treated for their injury and take the necessary time off from work in order to fully recover so as to return to work. But sadly, this is not always the case. There can be many instances where your claim is denied, and you will need to fight for your right to receive your benefits. If you or a loved one has been denied benefits by your employer or their workers' compensation insurance, you need the assistance of a workers' compensation attorney to assist you in handling the matter.
Many times a claim might be mistakenly denied due to poor documentation or lack of understanding on the part of the employee as to what exactly the procedure was. Without someone representing you who knows workers' compensation law, you are subject to the decisions of the workers' compensation insurance company that represents your employer, and not you. If you find that you have been denied compensation for some reason, our skilled lawyers can provide the legal expertise you will need to protect your rights.
When your claim is denied, our aggressive legal team will pursue an appeal on your behalf for a reinstatement of benefits. There will be legal paperwork and hearings before administrative boards to attend in order to fight against a denial of benefits, and without a skilled representative to assist you, your chances of winning against the system are small.
Because of the issues involved in workers' compensation claims, there are certain actions that must be done in a certain time period to preserve your rights. In addition, there could be other factors in your accident that would relate to other areas of the law, such as product liability or premises liability. Our experienced lawyers know all aspects of the law and can ensure the proper course of action is taken to obtain the maximum compensation on your behalf.
