What If My Workers’ Comp Claim Was Denied?

Having your workers' compensation claim denied can be a frustrating experience, especially when it's clear that you were hurt at work and need the benefits provided by law.

Many workers are surprised to be denied benefits by their employer's insurance carrier, a business that is motivated to pay out as little as possible — or nothing at all. It is crucial to get legal advice if your workers' comp claim was denied.
