If my workers’ compensation claim has been denied am I out of luck?
Short answer: no.
It is hard when you are in pain and attempting to recover to hear that your workers’ compensation claim has been denied. Not only have you been dealing with doctors and directions for healing, but now you have to deal with the devastating news that insurance will not be helping you with the financial struggle of being sick or injured. This doesn’t seem fair and in truth, it isn’t but it doesn’t mean that you don’t have options. What it does mean is that you need a strong advocate and aggressively act on your behalf. Our Workers’ Compensation Attorneys at JML Law, a Professional Law Corporation have a wonderful track record of success for our clients. We believe in a method where we listen and tactfully structure a response to what the insurance company is telling you. We know that insurance companies are just like any other business. We aren’t up to taking no for an answer and will do all we can to get the fair compensation you deserve.
Since insurance companies are a business, they are looking out for their bottom line. Billions of dollars are spent each year to provide financial help for those who are injured on the job. The insurance companies know that money is going to be spent, but they will ensure that no more money is given as needed. This means that if they can find a reason to deny a claim then they will. Again, is this fair? No. Instead, it is an attempt to take more time and stress from your life to fight this denied claim. Don’t go at this fight alone. Our Workers’ Compensation Attorneys at JML Law, a Professional Law Corporation in Los Angeles are ready to put up a fight for you.
What To Expect
California has a 30-day expiration date on when you can file a claim. This can be convoluted when it comes to injuries that don’t necessarily show symptoms right away. For example, back and neck injuries can get progressively worse over time, but may not show symptoms within 30 days. Injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome or heel spurs may also not have a certain point starting date, but that doesn’t mean that you cannot include them in a claim.
Other reasons why claims are denied is because your original attorney failed you. IF that be the case then getting new representation can be the difference of forever dealing with medical debt or getting financial help. Over 70% of denied claims have been overturned and actually, 50% more was given to the claim.
