What to Do If Your Workers’ Comp Claim is Denied

There are a few reasons why an insurance provider might deny your workers’ comp claim, including:

  • You filed your claim with misinformation, including small typos.
  • Your claim was filed outside statutes of limitations.
  • Your employer argues your injury is not work-related.
  • You no longer work for that employer.
  • You are an independent contractor and do not qualify for workers’ comp benefits.

After your workers’ compensation claim is denied, you have to decide what to do next to ensure you get the medical benefits and lost wages you deserve. It is likely that you have two choices: file an appeal or prepare for litigation.

An appeal will ask a Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board to review the denial and overturn it. The Board that reviews your case may vary depending on your state and employment. Litigation may be the right choice if an appeal has already failed, or uncommon circumstances make it seem unlikely for an appeal to succeed. During litigation, our attorneys can act on your behalf to present your argument before the court, pursuing a ruling in your favor. It is our goal to make certain you get every last penny of benefits you deserve.
