Workers' compensation claim

If you're injured on the job, it's natural to have some concerns about the future. From the impact on your finances to your ability to make a full recovery, there will be a lot going through your head.

Any on-the-job injury, even one that you consider minor, should be followed up with a medical exam. Furthermore, don't wait to report the incident and your injuries to your employer.

It's your hope that you file a workers' compensation claim and receive immediate benefits, but this doesn't always happen. Some of the most common reasons for a denial include:

  • Did not report the injury in time
  • Did not request medical treatment for the injury
  • Did not file a workers' compensation claim in time
  • Employer disputes the claim, often arguing that you were not injured at work

A workers' compensation denial is frustrating, but there are steps you can take to protect your legal rights. Do the following:

  • Review your denial letter to better understand the reason
  • Make note of any key dates
  • Collect information, such as evidence of your injury occurring at work

It's a challenge to file a workers' compensation claim, as it's a complicated legal process that's not always easy to understand. Depending on the circumstances, you may have to present your case at a hearing.

Despite the setback, don't hesitate to learn more about filing a workers' compensation claim by contacting an attorney. You have the right to receive compensation, so you should do whatever it takes to protect your legal rights.
