You Have the Right to Appeal a Workers’ Comp Claim Denial
The New Jersey workers’ compensation system is complicated. After a claim has been denied, an injured worker has the right to appeal the denial. The appeal can be made through a formal hearing or an informal hearing. Each option has its own rules, procedures, and deadlines. Mistakes made at this stage of the process can jeopardize your ability to obtain the benefits you deserve. That is why it is important to consult a lawyer who understands New Jersey workers’ compensation law and has a record of success in cases involving denied claims.
Why Was Your Claim Denied?
We will review your case to determine why your initial claim was denied. There are many possible reasons for a denial. Did you miss a deadline for filing the claim or notifying your employer of your injury or condition? Did your employer or its insurance company dispute that the injury or illness was related to work?
To avoid paying benefits, some employers and/or insurance companies will look for any possible reason to deny a workers’ compensation claim. In many cases, injured workers just give up, which saves the employer and insurance company money.
Don’t let an initial workers’ comp claim denial stop you from pursuing benefits. Contact us to discuss your case.
Did Your Job Cause An Injury or Aggravate An Existing Condition?
Workers’ compensation covers conditions that develop at work or are aggravated by work, not just injuries that occur at a specific date and time during the work day. For example, workers’ comp covers repetitive stress injuries, like carpal tunnel syndrome, that develop over time.
if you had a bad knee before you took a job that requires lots of walking, the job could aggravate the problem to the point where you need knee surgery. Our lawyers will pursue full benefits for all covered injuries and conditions.
Each workers’ compensation denial case is unique. Because of our knowledge and experience in workers’ comp law, our attorneys can review your case and provide clear answers to your questions.
