There are many reasons why your employer's insurance company may deny your workers compensation claim.
Here is a list of common errors that can be made if you do not have an attorney on your side to help with your claim..
1. The Employer or Insurance Company denies your claim because they are disputing your injury, which means they are denying the fact that you actually got hurt at work
2. The paperwork you filed with your claim was completed in error or incorrectly
In both situations it is vital to have an attorney to overview your documents and explain the lengthy process.
Even if your claim is "denied" an attorney can help you get that same claim accepted if they find some disputes or errors. It is your attorneys job to prove your injury was work related and with the proper medical documents they can help you get treatment that you need. An appeal can be filed to challenge the denial of your claim based on the merits of your case.
