Determined & Aggressive Workers’ Compensation Lawyers
Getting injured on the job is incredibly stressful. It can lead to a loss of income, painful medical procedures, hefty medical bills and permanent impairment. Many people file workers’ compensation claims because they expect their employer to cover their medical bills and lost wages while they recover from their injury. However, if you have the misfortune of having your worker’s compensation claim denied, you may rest assured in the fact that you are not alone. With a strong workers’ compensation attorney, you can fight back against the unfairness of having your claim denied and acquire the compensation you rightfully deserve.
The following are possible reasons why your claim was denied, including but not limited to:
- Injury was not reported on time
- Claim was not filed on time
- Failed drug or alcohol test
- Employer disputes claim and disqualifies your reason
- Record Statement given by employee (without knowing the law)
- No medical treatment required
- Insufficient evidence that injury is work related
Our experienced workers’ compensation lawyers at the Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor can help you understand the reasons for your claim’s denial, as well as assist you in deciding whether or not to pursue a claim. Insurance companies reject as many claims as they possibly can to protect their bottom dollar and keep employer premiums low. However, our tenacious workers’ compensation lawyers refuse to settle for this unfair standard as we strive to aggressively fight against these injustices. We will help you through the claims process and, if necessary, have your case heard before a Deputy Commissioner.
If your injury does not qualify for workers’ compensation benefits, we may be able to litigate against a third party that may have been responsible for the accident.
