Denied Workers' Compensation?

Posted By Katz Leidman Grossman Wolfe & Freund || 7-Jun-2011

Have you recently been denied workers' compensation?

The process of filing for workers' compensation can be complicated and frustrating. When you initially file for your benefits, you will have to wait to hear back from your insurance company. If your decision comes back negative for benefits, take the time to read all of the letter to see when you can appeal the decision. You must file your appeal within that time frame to be eligible.

In some cases, insurance carriers will accept and deny a claim. This means that one or some of your injuries will be covered by workers' compensation, while others have been denied. In that case, you can still file an appeal for the rejected claim while still collecting on your approved claims. Again, you must file within the required time frame to have your appeal considered.

Whenever you are struggling with workers' comp issues, you may want to consult with a New York workers' compensation attorney who can be of assistance. Contact our law office to set up an initial consultation now!
