We Appeal Workers’ Comp Denials
Workers’ compensation benefits are necessary for people injured on the job. You count on these benefits to get you by in the short-term and possibly the long-term. But workers’ compensation benefits can be difficult to obtain when employers and their insurers prioritize their profits over injured workers’ well-being.
The Law Office of Jonathan W. Doolan in Knoxville, Tennessee, can handle your workers’ compensation claim from start to finish. That includes pursuing an appeal if your benefits have been denied.
Reasons For Denial; Deadlines For Appeal
It is crucial to protect your rights after a workplace accident. And the first step is to file for workers’ compensation right away. If your claim is denied, our reliable legal team will fight the insurance companies for you. Here are some of the reasons for workers’ comp denials:
- You missed deadlines in filing your claim.
- Your injury was not serious enough.
- Your injury did not occur on the job or in the scope of your employment.
- There wasn’t enough medical evidence included in your claim.
- The insurance company is engaging in bad faith and refusing to cover your injury.
We can help you file an appeal. You begin the process by filing a petition for benefit determination. Typically, this appeal form must be filed within a year after the accident, a year from the most recent medical treatment, or a year from when your employer stopped paying compensation to you.
