Workers' compensation denied? Get the benefits you deserve

You got hurt on the job and expected your employer to help you get the compensation you deserved through workers' compensation. Just a little while after your accident, you are told that workers' compensation has denied your claim. Now, you think you might be out of luck, but the truth is that there are some things you can do.

It's possible that you could appeal your denied workers' compensation case through the state's board of workers' compensation, for instance. Before you do, take time to review your denial and see if there were errors made or things you can do to further support your case.

Workers' compensation injuries are denied for a number of reasons including not reporting an injury in time, not filing a claim on time, not going to get medical treatment or having insufficient evidence of where the injury took place. If your employer disputes your claim, that could also disqualify you in some instances.

If one of these reasons is why you're not being approved, you can fight them. For example, if you have more evidence that the injury took place at work, like a photo of you after the injury or a video made by co-workers during the incident, then that evidence could help. On the other hand, if you are denied for not filing on time, you may only be able to file a claim if you can show that there was a good reason for the delay, like your employer refusing your claim or being unable to file a claim for other reasons.
