You Still Have Options After A Denial
While some on-the-job injuries are only temporary, others can last a lifetime. When an accident has occurred at work, it is important for you to inform your employer at once. Even if you may not feel injured, reporting any incident immediately can protect you.
The signs and symptoms of an injury are not always readily apparent. Waiting too long to make a report or to file a workers’ compensation claim could result in a denial of your benefits.
Fortunately, a denied claim is not the end of the road. While it can be frustrating to have your application rejected, you still have options. Talk to the attorneys at Gammon, McFall & Villarreal in Cedartown and Rome about the steps you can take to appeal your case today.
Our Skilled Advocates Can Help You Appeal Your Case Today
Note that missed deadlines are not the only reason that a workers’ comp claim may have been denied. Plenty of other challenges can leave you without the necessary benefits to cover the care and treatment you need.
In fact, your claim can be denied for the following reasons and more:
- Your employer disputed that the injury was work-related.
- You did not go in for any medical examination of your injuries.
- Your injury is not eligible for a workers’ compensation claim.
- You lack the evidence to prove or support your case.
- You filed a claim after you were no longer employed there.
Regardless of the reason why you were refused benefits, you may have a valid argument to dispute this. Let our skilled workers’ compensation lawyers help you defend your claim today.
