WHAT TO DO IF YOUR CLAIM IS DENIED

While Workers' Compensation laws give rights to benefits, employers and Workers' Compensation insurance companies are interested in preventing you from collecting workers' compensation benefits that you are entitled to receive.

 

Like all of us, employers try to get Workers' Compensation insurance companies for the least amount of money possible. Insurance companies make money by collecting as much as they can in insurance premiums and paying as little as possible in claims.

 

If a Workers' Compensation claim is made, it is very certain that your employer's insurance premium will rise. For these reasons, your employer and insurance companies have conflicting interests with yours. They will try to discourage you from filing or opening a claim and can deny it.             

 

For this reason, if your claim is denied, or if you do not receive all the benefits to which you are entitled under California Workers' Compensation laws, you must retain the services of a lawyer with experience in worker's compensation appeals.
