When to Hire a Workers’ Comp Attorney
You should hire a workers’ compensation lawyer if you don’t know how to manage your claim yourself. You should also hire or at least speak to a workers’ comp attorney if you were severely injured at work and could stand to lose a lot if your claim isn’t handled well by your employer or their insurer. Essentially, if you think you need legal help, then you should be talking to one of our Pahrump workers’ compensation attorneys already. Initial consultations don’t cost anything, so there’s no risk in talking with us about your case.
Denied Workers’ Compensation Claims
Most people who need a workers’ compensation attorney are those who had a legitimate claim that was denied for an illegitimate reason. Employers that don’t want to pay more insurance premiums might mishandle a claim to have it denied. Or an insurer that doesn’t want to pay out a claim might find deny it without giving a reason. Our attorneys can manage these cases and prepare for litigation if need be.
Of course, some claims are denied for legitimate reasons. Our firm can help you if this is the case because there might still be ways to get you the benefits that you need.
Common reasons that workers’ comp claims are denied include:
- Claim was filed after a statute of limitations expired.
- Employee didn’t report their injury in time.
- Injury was not caused in the scope of their employment.
- Claim was fired after the employee quit.
- Injury is outside of the workers’ compensation policy guidelines.
- Injury existed before the workplace accident.
Can You File an Appeal?
When your workers’ compensation claim is denied and you think it should have been approved, you should come to our firm immediately. You could still have a chance to challenge or appeal the denial if you act fast enough. Our workers’ comp attorneys can send a challenge letter to the insurer to demand more information about the denial and to threaten legal action if corrective steps are not taken. Oftentimes, this is enough to make the insurance company reverse its decision.
If a challenge letter is not enough, then we can officially appeal your claim’s denial, which will put your case before an administrative law judge (ALJ) during a hearing. This hearing is a legal process similar to a trial in that we and the opposition can present our arguments to the ALJ about why the case should be handled one way or another.
Fighting for the Benefits You Need
Your workers’ compensation benefits can include:
- Medical treatments
- Disability pay
- Vocational retraining
Of course, you can’t get any of these benefits if the insurance company doesn’t want to provide them.
