Has your workers’ compensation claim been denied?
Workers’ compensation laws can be extremely complex and difficult to understand. Claims are often denied because of mistakes made in the documentation of medical evidence or other accident-related information, the employee did not agree to an independent medical examination, or the necessary paperwork wasn’t filed on time. It can be very distressing to find the financial support you were counting on to pay medical medicals and supplement lost income was disapproved.

San Jose Workers’ Comp Denial Attorney
When a workers’ compensation claim has been denied, the employee can file a petition to have the claim re-examined. A workers’ compensation claim is usually denied because:
- It was decided the injury occurred due to a pre-existing condition
- The injury was not considered to be severe enough to require benefits
- It was determined the injury was not work-related
The determination that an injury was the result of a pre-existing condition can be a matter of medical opinion versus medical fact. Workers’ comp lawyers at our firm are thoroughly familiar with the appeals process and will know how to substantiate your claim with additional information from health care experts. We can also petition the Court of Appeals to review the matter if an appeal has already been denied by the Division of Workers’ Compensation and/or the Industrial Claim Appeals Office.
