Denied Claims Lawyer in East Brunswick
Experienced in Appeals
The workers’ comp system in New Jersey was established to protect workers – and employers. You exchange the right to sue your employer for the right to benefits through this “no-fault” system. Essentially, if you are injured at work, whether due to an accident, toxic exposure, repetitive motions, a fall, or other incidents, you should expect to have your medical treatment covered, and to receive benefits for a percentage of your paycheck. Unfortunately, it isn’t always that easy.
Why a Workers’ Comp Claim Can Be Denied
A valid claim may be denied for various reasons, including but not limited to:
- No one witnessed the injury, causing your employer to claim it did not occur on the job
- You failed to report your injury
- You reported your injury, but your employer did not report it
- You failed to submit the required documentation
- Your medical records do not match the accident report
- Your injury was pre-existing and not work-related
- You are attempting to defraud the system
A staggering percentage of valid claims are denied, leaving a worker in a tough position with medical bills piling up, unable to work, and without an income. This is the time to reach out to our legal team.
Your employer may dispute your claim. In some cases, the denial is the result of failing to submit the required documentation. Whatever the reason, it is urgent to get the problem resolved as quickly as possible. If you filed a claim that was denied, you have the right to an appeal.
