What To Do After A Denied Workers' Comp Claim

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.

We can review your application, file a claim 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 U.S. Court of Appeals.
