After an injury at work, you are eligible to receive temporary disability benefits that pay medical expenses and a portion of your lost wages while you recover. Once a claim is filed, the insurance company decides whether to accept the claim and begin paying benefits.
If your claim is denied, the denial letter should also describe how to appeal the claim and specify deadlines for filing the appeal. In most cases, the denial will center around an argument that the accident did not happen on the job, or that your injury did not result from the accident.
In any case, when your claims have been denied, facing the government system or insurance company on your own is a complex and daunting task. The attorneys of Kaufman Law, P.C. have more than 40 years of experience in successfully appealing denied benefits.
