Unforeseen accidents on the job can catch you off-guard, leading to painful injuries and time off work. You may try to get help through the Workers’ Compensation system but run into difficulties accessing your benefits.
Often, people have questions about Workers’ Compensation.
What happens if your claim is denied? What if your employer doesn’t believe you were injured on the job or expresses doubt about how the injury happened? How can you pay your medical bills and regular expenses when you’re unable to work?
Workers’ compensation is available to most workers who are classified as employees, but few people know all their rights under the Workers’ Compensation system. Your employer’s insurance company adjuster, on the other hand, knows all the ins and outs of the system and how to use them against you.
The adjuster doesn’t want to pay any more claims than they have to, and they will go over your claim with a fine-toothed comb, looking for any excuse to reject it.
They might get help from your boss, too. Your supervisor has probably been encouraged to keep Worker’s Comp claims to a minimum in order to avoid a hike in insurance rates.
Ideally, they should do this by ensuring the workplace is as safe as possible so fewer injuries happen. But in the real world, sometimes bosses “lose” Worker’s Compensation paperwork or disagree with the employee’s explanation of how the injury happened.
Your workers’ compensation attorney will review your claim form and assist you with any questions or concerns you have. We’ll point out any discrepancies or other issues that might cause problems and advise you of any paperwork you may need. We can also help if you’ve already filed a claim and received a denial.
People often ask us this question in frustration, and we understand how upsetting a denial can be. You worked hard and expected Workers’ Compensation to help if you were ever injured on the job, but now you’ve been turned down for reasons that may seem vague or unfair.
We’ll review your claim and try to determine what went wrong, then we’ll explain your options for fighting the denial.
Here are some common reasons for claim denials that you may encounter:
The forms you have to fill out can be confusing, and your HR representative may not be especially helpful.
Sometimes, people make mistakes because they’re not sure how to answer a question on the form. In other cases, they may submit incomplete information because their HR representative gave them the runaround about providing insurance information, so they submitted without it.
If this happens to you, please call a lawyer right away. Other workers find that they’ve missed the deadline to file a claim or have run into other challenges with the paperwork.
Once you file a Worker’s Compensation claim, your employer is expected to respond. If they agree with the details of your claim, that removes one potential hurdle (but you may still have difficulty with the insurance company).
However, in many cases, the employer doesn’t agree with your claim. Here are some of the everyday situations we see:

To quickly resolve matters following an accident, insurance companies will offer you less than you deserve in compensation for your injuries. Many victims feel pressured to accept these offers as the bills begin to pile up, but that is rarely a good idea. The insurance company is looking to protect its bottom line; and will offer injured victims less than they deserve. An experienced personal injury attorney understands how to negotiate with the insurance company and can look out for your best interests by getting you the compensation you deserve after an injury. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, it is important to avoid negotiating or providing recorded statements to the insurance company without first seeking help from a qualified personal injury attorney.
The best way to determine if you have a personal injury case is to speak with a knowledgeable attorney. Our legal professionals have the expertise to evaluate your case and determine a strong legal strategy so that you can obtain the greatest amount of compensation possible under the law.
