Have you filed a workers’ compensation claim only to find out you’ve been denied the benefits you know you rightly deserve?
If so, you are probably angry and scared. You know you are being denied justice, and you also know you need this money to survive and take care of your loved ones. What will you do if you cannot get your claim processed successfully?
We are here to help.
In the state of California, if you were injured while working, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, because in California we have a no-fault system. Claims are usually denied when the filing party fails to prove they were injured on the job. And the reality is, a lot of claims are denied the first time through, and many injured workers who do manage to get their claims through are awarded less than they deserve.
Why Are Workers’ Compensation Claims Denied?
- Poor or missing documentation
- Missed application deadlines
- Alleged pre-existing conditions
