Workers’ compensation claims are denied for a variety of reasons. A denial does not mean a work-related accident did not happen and you were not injured. Most cases that we have handled involved a failure to present all the facts in an effective manner. Experience is paramount in selecting a workers’ compensation lawyer.
At Westmoreland, Patterson, Moseley & Hinson, L.L.P., our attorneys combine over 200 years of experience and insight into the initial application process and appealing denials.
Why Was Your Claim Denied — And What Can Be Changed?
Our attorneys attend to every detail in investigating accidents, interviewing witnesses and reviewing medical reports to build fact-based claims. They also represent clients who have had a workers’ comp claim denied because (supposedly):
- Injuries are not believed to be related to the work accident
- A workplace accident did not occur
- Injuries may have occurred, but that does not prevent someone from working
- Allegations of willful misconduct involving alcohol or drugs
- Injuries occurred while working, but not on the premises of the employer
A denial is not the final decision. Options exist in appealing the denial or pursuing a civil claim for your injures. We treat each workers’ compensation claim individually, understanding that unique issues exist. Regardless of how we pursue compensation following a denial, we will employ all of our resources to fight for a satisfactory outcome.
