Was your workers’ compensation claim initially denied?

If you were injured on the job and if you realize that you won't be able to return to work, you have the right to file a claim for workers' compensation benefits.

While there is no guarantee that your claim will be approved, you hope that this will happen in the near future. This will give you access to money that will help you get by as you recover.

Unfortunately, there are times when a workers' compensation claim is denied. There are many reasons for this, such as if your company claims that you were injured outside of work.

If you disagree with the final decision, it's time to learn more about the appeals process. This is a step that you don't want to take, but you have no choice at this point. To start, your appeal will be sent to the Workers' Compensation Appeal Board. As a paper only review, you don't have to appear in person.

At our law firm, we do whatever it takes to win your case at the workers' compensation judge level. With great success, we've helped many injured workers avoid the formal appeals process.

There is nothing worse than the thought of being injured at work and not able to return to your job. If this happens, don't dwell on the past but instead look toward the future. This means many things, such as filing a claim for workers' compensation benefits.

If your initial claim is denied for any reason, you should learn more about your legal rights. You don't want to give up, as there is money out there that you deserve.
