What Do I Do If My Claim Was Denied?

Lancaster Workers' Compensation ClaimsIf you have filed a workers’ compensation claim and have received a notice of denial, you should talk with a lawyer as soon as possible. You have the right to file a claim petition following a denial. However, it is important that your petition is filed correctly, and in the proper time frame, so having a knowledgeable attorney in the process is key.

Do Not Talk with the Insurance Company

After your claim has been denied, you should not talk to the insurance company before consulting with an attorney. Be wary of tactics used by insurance companies such as seeking recorded statements from claimants without the benefit of counsel, and using their own words against them. Honest people can often hurt their own claims by talking with representatives whom they presume to be on their side. You need a lawyer with the experience and the compassion to truly be on your side.

Get the Help of an Experienced Workers’ Compensation Attorney

It is important to realize that the denial of a claim is not the end of a case. In fact, it is from the initial denial that much of the crucial part of a case begins. You need to make sure that you have an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer to help in:

  • Understanding the law and all of the timing for filings
  • Obtaining full and more complete medical records and evidence
  • Presenting testimony at hearings before a Workers’ Compensation judge
  • Cross-examining insurance company and employer witnesses
  • Presenting expert medical testimony
  • Properly evaluating and negotiating settlements
