The Insurance Company Denied My Workers’ Comp Claim. Now What?
Insurance companies frequently deny legitimate workers’ compensation claims. It’s important to understand, however, that you have appeal rights. However, filing a workers’ compensation appeal isn’t a simple process. If you’ve been denied, contact a workers’ compensation attorney immediately. A lawyer can help you meet California’s strict appeal deadlines, in addition to preparing your claim for the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board (WCAB).
Presenting a claim to the WCAB requires detailed evidence and legal analysis. You’ll also need to negotiate with your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company. Because this is a complicated process, most injured workers decide to work with a workers’ compensation lawyer.
