Workers' Compensation Denials

Appealing Your Claim

One of the most frustrating parts of an injury is the long and drawn out process that can occur when trying to file a workers' compensation claim. Everyone hopes that their claim will be quickly approved and diligently paid out so they can start receiving their benefits as soon as possible. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. In some situations, workers' compensation benefits are denied following a hearing at the Department of Labor. You then have the right to appeal the decision to the Compensation Appeals Board.

If you have been denied benefits following a hearing, you have only 30 days to file an appeal. The workers' comp group at Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. will guide you through that appeal process.

How Can I Fight a Denial?

There are a few important steps that you can take to help a workers' compensation denial. In the event that denial occurs, it can be to your benefit to abide by some of the following instructions when appealing your denial:

  • Speak with an attorney right away. Our firm can help you through the entire process and ensure you receive the benefits you deserve.
  • Revisit your health care provider. Follow up with an exam that determines whether your injuries are long or short term and record all claims by the doctor. Make sure you receive copies of medical record and that all your injuries are recorded in great detail.
  • When you work with your attorney, be up front and honest about any pre-existing injuries and make sure you attend all meetings and hearings.

If you feel that you are ready to move forward with your appeal, it is important that you contact an attorney from our firm right away. Our dedicated and professional team will aggressively fight to help you obtain the results that you desire. You should never suffer alone after an injury, and when you work with our firm, you will never have to.

Trust in Shaheen & Gordon, P.A., and contact our firm today to speak with a trusted workers' compensation attorney right away.
