Workers’ Comp Claim Denied
Many workers’ comp claims are initially denied, for a variety of reasons. To appeal a denied claim, you need representation from an experienced workers’ comp attorney. Mario Trespalacios has been representing injured workers since 1992 and will pursue your rights to the fullest extent of the law. He will work aggressively to appeal your claim.
There are many factors that can lead to a denial of workers’ comp benefits such as:
- The injury did not occur at work. A claim may be denied if your employer successfully argues that your injury occurred somewhere outside of the workplace.
- The injury is not related to your work. Your employer may argue that the injury was not related to or caused by the work you do.
- Intoxication. If there is evidence that you were under the influence of drugs or alcohol when the injury occurred, your claim will likely be denied.
- There is a pre-existing condition. As soon as you report the injury, your employer’s insurance company will begin to build a case against you — that includes searching through your medical history to find a pre-existing condition, which would prove that the injury is not work-related.
Even though your claim has been denied based on one or more of the issues listed above, do not lose hope. Miami denied claims attorney Mario Trespalacios will analyze the evidence of your case and request an appeal.
