The Experience You Need To Achieve The Successful Case Results You Deserve.

My workers' comp claim was denied. Now what?

A denied workers' compensation claim is a devastating turn of events, especially for an injured worker who is struggling to pay medical bills and make ends meet. The good news: A denied claim is not the end of the road. 

Connecticut laws allow you to appeal a denied workers' compensation claim, whether your compensation was denied altogether or if you were only denied coverage for a specific treatment.

There are many reasons insurance companies deny workers' compensation claims. Some of the most common arguments they put forth are:

  • The accident did not take place at work
  • The injury was pre-existing
  • The injury is not as severe as reported
  • The injured employee failed to report the injury in a timely manner

An experienced workers' compensation lawyer is familiar with these arguments and knows how to counter them to benefit injured workers.

Remember, the insurance company is not on your side. If you rely solely on what they tell you, you are likely only getting information that protects your employer's financial interests.

Talk to your own workers' compensation lawyer to gain an understanding of the true value of your claim and how Connecticut workers' comp laws apply in your situation. While this denied claim may have been a setback, it is only the beginning. You have the right to fight for the workers' comp benefits you need and deserve.
