Employers and insurance companies can sometimes delay or deny a workers' compensation claim. There are many reasons for this – sometimes, there isn't enough information; sometimes, there is a mishandling of evidence; and sometimes, the insurance companies just want to save money. Regardless of why your claim is denied, it often generates anxiety and issues.
In the meantime, you are injured, possibly unable to work, or even worse – fired from your job. How do you pay the bills? Is there anything else you can do?
The answer is yes – there is something you can do. After a workers' comp case has been denied, you must act quickly in order to file for a review of the case. If you don't act quickly, you may lose the right to dispute the claim. Don't give up hope – instead, you can contact a lawyer. At a time like this, it is very important to have someone who is experienced and knowledgeable about the appeal process and deadlines involved in a workers' compensation case. Otherwise, you may end up making a mistake that could cost you your case!
