Fighting Denied Workers’ Compensation Claims

Denied Workers' Compensation ClaimsIf your workers’ compensation claim has been denied, it is important to understand your rights and that this is far from uncommon. Workers’ compensation claims are vigorously denied. Those who have attempted to obtain benefits know this well.

They will try any possible means of denying claims, but some of the most common include claims of:

  • Willful employee misconduct
  • An attempt to injure another employee
  • Willful failure to use a safety appliance
  • Willful failure to perform required statutory duties
  • Horseplay
  • Intoxication or impairment
  • Pre-existing medical conditions
  • Failure to report on an accident in a timely manner
