Next Steps After A Workers' Comp Claim Is Denied

If your initial claim was denied, your next option is to file an application for hearing and appear before an administrative law judge. During the hearing, both parties will investigate the medical evidence and the circumstances surrounding your injury. Expert medical witnesses may also be called upon to give an opinion on the relationship between your injury and your work.

Why You Need An Experienced Lawyer On Your Side

To counter a denied claim, it is wise to have an experienced attorney like Amy Brewer on your side. Here are a few good reasons:

  • Workers' compensation laws are very complicated, involving not only the Workers' Compensation Act but also other administrative laws. Getting a court appointment and making sure that all your evidence is admitted are also tough.
  • The insurance company's lawyers are getting paid to have your claim thrown out. You don't want to fight one of those big dogs on your own.
  • If you don't follow the correct processes and procedures, your hearing may be delayed or your case dismissed.
  • The hearing is your one and only chance to convince the judge of your claim. If you don't get all your evidence in at the hearing, you will not be allowed to put it in on appeal.
