Have You Been Denied Workers' Comp?

Just because you have been initially denied on a workers' compensation claim, does not mean it is over. Many initial workers' comp claims for benefits are denied initially. There are many stages of administrative hearings and appeals that can follow an initial denial. The main point is to not give up and seek an experienced workers' compensation attorney from the beginning who can help you every step of the way. If you have already been denied, we can still help you as we help clients who are at almost any stage of the workers' compensation process.

What To Do After Being Denied

This is not necessarily the end of the road for you and your family as you seek workers' comp benefits. Suffering a work-related injury is very stressful. Not only are you trying to recover from the injury but it has left you unable to work. The last thing you need is to have to deal with the hassles of the workers' compensation process. Let a seasoned and dedicated workers' comp attorney help you.

At the Law Office of Stephen Renick, our lawyers help injured workers throughout the South Florida and Florida Keys areas. With over three decades of legal experience, attorney Stephen Renick is here for you every step of the way. No matter what industry you work in, from construction and plants to offshore oil rigs or an administrative position, we can help you get the benefits that you deserve. This includes denied workers' comp claims. We can review your application and file and help you consider the next steps for your particular situation.

Some common reasons for a denial include:

  • A pre-existing condition
  • The injury is not deemed work-related
  • Incomplete medical records

After an initial denial, the next step is for your attorney to file a petition on your behalf. This is brought before a judge of compensation claims in an administrative hearing. Mediation can also result as well as additional hearings. The next step after that would be the District Appeals Court.
