After suffering an injury while on the job, reporting the incident and receiving medical attention, many injured workers in Kentucky and Indiana receive a letter stating that their claim for workers' compensation benefits has been denied.
At Brizendine Law Office, LLC, we help injured workers in both states stand up for their rights by appealing an initial denial through all necessary channels.
Why Was My Workers' Compensation Claim Denied?
Many clients turn to us once their workers' comp claim is denied. But why was their claim overturned in the first place? The claim may have been mishandled by the employer, the insurance carrier may have flagged an error or determined that the cause of the accident disqualified the claim, or perhaps a medical professional diagnosed the injury as related to a previous, non-work related injury and thus caused the claim to be denied. These and numerous other factors can result in an unfair determination regarding your workers' comp claim.
As your attorneys, we will explain the process for appealing a denial, guide you through the hearing process, and use our skill and resources to help secure the benefits and compensation you deserve. From the outset, we will review your initial claim, gather evidence, and work with health care providers and other professionals to ensure we have a strong claim, and ensure that all deadlines are met.
Even if the initial denial is upheld by the administrative law judge, there are other avenues for appeal, including going before the Workers' Compensation Board and eventually a hearing before the state court of appeals. With more than 20 years of experience, we know the various processes and how these cases can progress.
