Work comp denied my claim. Now what?
When you are hurt at work and your worker’s compensation claim is denied, it feels like insult added to injury. However, your case is not over just because a claims adjuster denied your claim or tells you your file has been closed. There are many reasons a claim might be denied—a lack of information about the work incident, the absence of necessary medical documentation, or an adverse report from an “independent” medical evaluation by an insurance company doctor—but you still have rights. You have the right to have your case heard by a judge, and there is a process by which you can seek benefits for medical expenses, lost wages, and permanent disability to your body. Our practice is focused on worker’s compensation claims, and we can help you get the benefits you deserve. Call us today for your free consultation.
