Denied Workers’ Compensation Claim

Are you dealing with a denied workers’ compensation claim? Watch this video to learn how our California employment lawyers can help you recover.

Question:

What should I do if my workers’ compensation claim is denied?

Answer:

A question that we receive all too often here at the firm is what to do once a claim has been denied. The reality is that, all too often, valid claims are denied by the employer or, more often than not, by the insurance carrier. In fact, a lot of times, claims are just denied as a matter of course.

If you have filed a Workers’ Denied Workers' Compensation ClaimCompensation claim and the insurance carrier or the employer is denying that Workers’ Compensation claim, it’s important for you to do a couple of things. First, it’s important for you to continue on with your Workers’ Compensation claim to make sure that you receive the treatment that you deserve. Second, it’s important for you to document the fact that you did get injured at work and that your claim should be covered under California Workers’ Compensation law.

Three, I would encourage you to reach to an attorney to assist you in making sure that the claim is ultimately accepted either by the insurance carrier, or the employer, or have the California Workers’ Compensation Board find that the claim is actually work-related and that the claim should be covered. If you have any questions as a result of the claim that’s either been denied or been accepted, feel free to give me a call. I’m happy to answer any questions that you may have.
