Denial of Workers Compensation Claim: What You Can Do

Your Worker's Compensation claim will be approved or denied based on many different factors. Many people are denied because they waited to file their claim until after they have lost their job. If you want your claim to be approved, it's important that you file your claim as soon as possible to ensure all deadlines are met and that your injury is properly diagnosed in a timely fashion.

Important Deadlines

There are several deadlines that must be met when filing a Worker's Compensation claim. Missing just one can cause your claim to be denied, leaving you without the benefits you deserve. Your attorney will ensure that all deadlines are met and all of your paperwork is in order.

Lack of Evidence

A lack of evidence may also result in a denial. Talk to witnesses, take pictures, and see your doctor immediately. Start collecting evidence as soon as possible. If you have an attorney, they will help you get the information you need.

Proving Your Injury Is Work-Related

If you have prior injuries or health conditions, it is extremely important that you prove your new injuries were caused by a work-related event. You need to see your doctor as soon as possible and may be asked to have a company doctor examine you as well.
