Fighting a Workers' Comp Claim Denial
It would be smart to speak with a workers' comp lawyer as soon as possible. Unfortunately, an employer can deny a Workers’ Compensation claim for any reason, even if it is not a good reason. This is because there is no penalty for an employer if a claim is denied, even if they realize the claim should be paid. The reasoning seems to be that if 100 claims are denied, and two people get an attorney, then they will pay those two people. Make sure you are one of the people who get paid. Let us represent you. Our workers' comp lawyers charge a small percentage of the benefits you actually receive, so it won't cost you anything unless you win.
