Workers’ Comp Claim Denied? Put Our Years Of Experience On Your Side
A workers’ compensation claim denial isn’t a dead end. At the Law Offices of Andrew B. Shin, we move against claim denials, working within the system to get your claim a second chance. Insurance companies don’t want to have to cover your expenses; they can make it difficult for even a strong claim to make it through. From the initial application all the way to the appeals, we fight for you.
Do I Need A Workers’ Comp Attorney?
Anytime you seek a settlement, at least seek legal counsel. If your work-related injury requires medical treatment, resulted in disability or requires an extensive amount of time off of work, it is within your best interest to call a workers’ compensation lawyer to explore your options for financial compensation.
What Is The Process Of Filing A Workers Compensation Claim?
From the beginning, you can benefit from retaining the services of our workers’ compensation team. However, especially when a claim is denied, we become an indispensable asset.
In the event of a claim denial, we will outline your options:
- First, an appeal is filed with the Appeals Board. This appeal requires certain forms filled out with precision. Having us not only review your forms but walk you through completion of them can bring a certain peace of mind.
- We will receive notification of a hearing. At this hearing, you will have the opportunity to tell your story to a judge. This personal experience requires detailed preparation. With our experience, you can walk in feeling confident.
What If My Insurance Disagrees With My Treatment Plan?
Sometimes, an employer’s insurance company will approve payment of your workers’ compensation claim but will require that you receive different treatment than what you desire. This form of denial also requires additional followup.
