Getting injured at work should never lead to you having to battle for compensation. You should be able to count on workers’ compensation insurance to help with any work-related injury. However, all too often, injured workers receive a “Notice of Delay” with their claim.
At JML Law, we are going to be by your side. When you need a Downey delayed claim lawyer, we are going to fight to ensure you get every dime you need for injury compensation. Let our knowledgeable and experienced team get to work today.
Workers will generally receive a “Notice of Delay” for one of two reasons:
The US Bureau of Labor Statistics releases annual reports on all nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses. During the latest reporting year, they say that 2.8 million workers were injured. These injuries range from minor to catastrophic.
Regardless of how a work injury occurs, workers’ compensation insurance should cover the expenses. Workers’ comp claims are considered “no-fault,” meaning that even if you caused your injury, you have the right to coverage.
By law, you will receive coverage for your injuries during a “Notice of Delay” period. From the time a workers’ compensation claim is made, your employer or the insurance carrier has 90 days to approve or deny your claim. During that 90-day period, and through any delay period, they must cover your medical expenses up to $10,000.
However, they could deny your claim and stop any benefits you are receiving. If you think you will be denied or have been notified of a claim denial, seek assistance from a Downey delayed claim lawyer immediately.
It is important that you follow all doctor’s orders while your claim is being reviewed. Do not give your employer or insurance carrier any reason to deny your claim.
