Getting injured while on the job can be a very stressful experience for you. Part of you may fear filing a claim with your employer because you worry about retribution or your job long-term. Another part of you may worry about how you are going to pay your bills, meet your obligations and care for your family if you are unable to work again. Once you decide it is better to file a claim, the process can be a bit overwhelming to you. There are countless forms to fill out, doctors to see, and much waiting for approvals and results. In the end, you may find that your employer’s insurance company denies your claim to benefits. What can you do now? You can learn your options and find about the appeal process when you talk to an experienced workman’s compensation attorney like ours here at Belal Hamideh Law.
The Appeals Process
Under the law, you are entitled to appeal the decision of the insurance company and ask for a hearing regarding the matter. There can be several reasons why an insurance company may deny the claim, including statements from your employer that the injuries are exaggerated. There may also be issues with the paperwork you filed, or there may be a need for more evidence, records, and medical evaluation. Any of these reasons can cause a denial. While you may have heard it is difficult to get a denial overturned, if you have the right lawyer on your side, it can happen for you.
