Was Your Workers’ Compensation Claim Denied?

It’s always a frightening experience for workers and their families when their claim for workers’ compensation benefits is denied. Sometimes, an employer’s insurance company doesn’t want to pay the total cost of the treatment the injured worker needs. The employer and insurance company deny that workers’ compensation covers the injury or illness. More about McAllen Workers Compensation Lawyers here
Whatever the situation, when you have been denied worker’s comp benefits, you may face huge medical bills and other expenses and worry about how you and your family will pay for them.

Some common reasons claims may be denied:

Your employer says that workers’ compensation does not cover your injury.
Your employer says your injury did not happen during work hours.
Your employer’s insurance company argues that the injury was not as serious as you know it to be.

Fortunately, the workers’ compensation system provides ways for injured workers to continue to pursue their claims after an initial denial. However, the workers’ comp appeals process has many deadlines, technical requirements, and legal complications. Moreover, during the process, the other side may offer workers’ compensation settlements that are insufficient to cover all your expenses. It’s essential to have the help of a qualified workers’ compensation lawyer during this part of the process.
