Appealing A Denied Workers’ Compensation Claim
In theory, the workers’ compensation system is simple. If you are hurt while performing a job-related duty, you are eligible to recover workers’ comp benefits, regardless of who may be at fault for a workplace accident. However, things do not always go so smoothly. Valid workers’ compensation claims get denied all the time. When they do, you need an experienced lawyer on your side who can help guide you through the appeals process.
I am attorney Jon B. Gann, and I am dedicated to helping workers protect and assert their rights. I have been providing skilled legal representation to people in need for more than two decades, and I am prepared to put my experience to work for you.
Claims May Be Denied For Any Number Of Reasons
Insurance providers may deny workers’ compensation benefits for any number of reasons, including:
- Skepticism about the seriousness of the injury
- A belief that the injury occurred outside of work
- A belief that it is an old injury or is the result of a preexisting condition
- A belief that you are still able to perform your job duties
Whatever the reason is for denying your claim, you still have the right to appeal. I can review your case; determine what, if anything, may have gone wrong, and effectively argue on your behalf to help you secure the benefits you deserve.
