Common Reasons Workers' Comp Claims Are Denied

  • You waited too long to file. The law requires that you report claims immediately, otherwise it can be easier for your employer to dispute that the injury even happened at work.
  • Not enough medical evidence. You must provide medical documentation that shows the severity of your injury by a qualified doctor.
  • Did not receive medical treatment. Once you see a doctor, you must continue to receive the treatment in order to show the necessity of benefits.

Tips for Filing Workers' Compensation Claims

One of the best ways to approach your claim is with the help of a Workers' Compensation attorney. Your attorney can help you prepare the paperwork and counsel you throughout your medical treatment to ensure that all rules are followed.

When filing for Workers' Compensation, remember to:

  • Notify your employer immediately
  • Fill out all forms completely
  • Follow your treating physician's instructions closely
  • Keep all records of expenses for treatment
  • Contact an attorney for help
