Denied Workers Compensation Claim
Worker’s compensation protects you by providing coverage for medical expenses and loss of income in the event of an accident or work-related injury or illness. Unfortunately, the workers compensation claim process isn’t always easy. Many claims are denied, even in the case of falls at work, work-related car accidents, chemical exposure, or machinery malfunction or failure. Some injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, occur gradually and before you know it, you are facing medical bills and loss of income, not to mention loss of quality of life. Workers compensation claims should be filed quickly.
Don’t let others tell you that your injury isn’t work-related or that it is not serious in nature. Without an experienced attorney by your side you may fall prey to the mercy of the insurance companies and their doctors. Often times, the insurance companies and their doctors do not have your best interest at heart, and are only looking to limit any liability without any consideration of the pain you suffer from or the severity of your accident. If you filed a claim and it was denied by your employer’s insurance company, Shulman & Hill can assist you in the process of having that denial reconsidered or reviewed by a Workers’ Compensation Law Judge or a Board panel of Workers’ Compensation Law Judges.
