Fighting for You When You Are Hurt on the Job
What to Do if Your Claim is Denied
There are many reasons as to why your workers’ compensation claim may have been denied. For example, you may not have reported the injury or filed the claim in the required time period. Or, your employer might accuse you of not having been injured on the job, or that your injury was the result of your doing something on the job that you shouldn’t have been doing. However, if your claim is denied, don’t give up hope. Our attorneys can defend you to help get the benefits you deserve and ensure your employee rights are respected.
Independent Medical Examinations
To apply for workers’ compensation, your insurance company will probably require you to receive an independent medical examination. The IME is a large factor in whether your claim will be accepted or denied. Our attorneys know how to handle IMEs and how to make them proceed as successfully as possible. We will provide you with tips and guidance to ensure you go into the appointment confident that you are offering the doctor all of the necessary information about your injury.
