What you need to know about a workers’ compensation denial

If you suffer an injury on the job, you won't want to waste any time receiving medical attention.

Once you have a clear overview of your injuries and how to treat them, you can then learn more about your legal rights. This means knowing if you can file a claim for workers' compensation benefits.

While you hope that your claim is approved the first time around, you know that a denial could come into play. Here are some of the many reasons for a workers' compensation denial:

  • You did not receive medical treatment after the accident
  • You did not file the claim on time
  • You did not report the accident to your employer on time
  • Your employer feels that you were not injured on the job
  • You are unable to prove that the injury occurred at work

These are among the more common reasons for a workers' compensation denial, but there are others that could come into play.

If you need to appeal a workers' compensation claim denial, make sure you know the process for doing so. Generally speaking, the denial letter will tell you exactly what you need to do. By following these steps, one at a time, you can put yourself in better position moving forward.

You never know what will happen when you file a workers' compensation claim. Maybe you receive an approval, but maybe you receive a denial letter. If your claim is not immediately approved, you will want to take action. You have legal rights and there is nothing wrong with protecting them at all costs.
