What if my workers’ compensation claim is denied?

You may put in long hours at your job. You work in manufacturing and often have to work extra to keep up with company production needs. Then, one day, toward the end of your shift, your shoulder is aching, and you have to leave early. It still hurts the next day and three days later, when you go to the doctor to get it checked out.

You reported your injury to your employer after that and filed for worker’s compensation. However, your employer’s insurance provider denies your workers’ comp claim. What should you do now?

First, you should know that you can appeal a denied workers’ compensation claim. You have three years from the date of your injury to do that. Second, your employer’s insurance company may have denied your workers’ compensation claim for a number of reasons, including:

  1. The insurance provider doesn’t believe your injury occurred at work.
  2. The insurance provider believes your injury is the result of a pre-existing condition.
  3. You didn’t seek medical treatment right away or you didn’t follow your doctor’s recommended treatment for your injury.

However, many employees have legitimate workers’ compensation claims denied. You should seek help from a worker’s compensation attorney if an insurance provider denies your workers’ compensation claim. An experienced workers’ compensation attorney will understand the steps to file for an appeal and can help gather more evidence to support your workers’ compensation claim. You have a right to receive compensation for a work injury and you shouldn’t hesitate to fight for that if you need to.
