I always assumed that personal injury cases where pretty straight forward. After being in an accident, any financial losses that you suffered would be reimbursed by the liable party's insurance company. Unfortunately, things only work this way in a perfect world. In the real world, personal injury cases are extremely complex and getting the insurance company to pay a fair settlement requires the expertise of an experienced injury lawyer. Unfortunately, it took me several months to finally seek out the legal assistance I needed. As a result, I waited much longer than necessary to get the compensation I so desperately needed. During this time, I learned more about personal injury law than I ever thought I would. It is my hope that this blog will allow me to share that knowledge with you so that you can avoid making some of the same mistakes that I did.
Just because you received a denial letter in the mail from the workers' compensation insurance company is no reason to give up. Hurt workers must know what to do and how to do it after a denial if they are to receive the benefits they deserve.
When Claims Are Denied
Your employer's workers' compensation insurer must provide you with information about your claim once it's submitted. If you are denied benefits, the letter should state why you were denied and your options for appealing the decisions. While some reasons for denying claims are just and legal, others are not. Here are just a few common reasons why claims get denied:
Appeal Your Denial
Denials of workers' comp benefits are made in error all the time. Along with the reason for the denial, instructions and time limits for filing an appeal will be on the letter. The appeals process is a complex process with so much on the line that professional legal help with your claim is in order. Speak to a workers' comp attorney about the denial and find out if you have a good case for the appeals process. If so, the lawyer will take the burden of proving your worker's comp case from you and assist with your case.
