Denied Workers’ Compensation Claims in Atlanta
Appealing Your Denied Claim to Recover Compensation
Whether you work in a job which is known to be dangerous, such as in the construction field, or you simply incurred an injury on the job, workers’ compensation is intended to protect you. There are certain protocols that you must go through to file a claim, but with the help of your attorney, you should be able to successfully recover compensation for your injuries. However, it is not always this simple, as your claim may be wrongfully denied, blocking you from receiving benefits even while you are unable to work due to your injuries.
There are a number of reasons why a claim could be denied, and the Atlanta workers’ compensation lawyers at Cummings & Middlebrooks, LLP have the skill and resources to get to the bottom of the cause of the denial. Contact us online to learn more.
Timely Assistance for Your Claim
If your application for workers’ compensation coverage was denied, you must take quick action. The loss of wages and medical bills can pile up, and you may not be able to recover and heal because of the stress you are under. If you file an application to appeal a decision on your workers’ compensation benefits and it is granted there is a panel of judges who will review your case.
The judges who look over your case may decide to:
- Modify the existing decision by the judge
- Rescind the existing decision by the judge
- Send the case back to the judge for further investigation
