Denied Workers' Compensation Claims
Workers' compensation is a legally mandated insurance system intended to pay 100% of any medical treatment needed by a worker whose injuries or disability is caused by or occurs while on their job. The rules and regulations governing workers' compensation are complicated and vary from state to state.
If your application for workers' compensation benefits has been denied, it is important to get experienced legal representation. At Meyerkord & Kurth, we will review your application and the denial to see what can be done. Even if your claim has been denied, you are entitled to have someone that can stand up for your rights and take the legal steps in an appeal.
Reasons for Workers' Comp Denials
Claims are denied for a variety of reasons, such as in cases when it is claimed that the injury was not clearly work related or that it is believed that the injury is less serious than the injured victim is claiming. The paperwork and documentation necessary to have your claim accepted can lead to errors or a failure to submit proper documentation to support your claim for benefits.
They can unnecessarily deny, delay or demand further paperwork or documentation in valid injury claims. With our extensive understanding of workers' compensation laws, we can represent you and help you get the benefits you are entitled to receive under law.
