Worker's Comp Claim Denials

Orlando Workers' Compensation Attorney

Worker's compensation was specifically designed as a "no fault" system, meaning that you have the right to receive benefits for lost wages and medical benefits regardless of whether the accident was caused by you or another party. Because it is not necessary to prove fault by someone else, many believe that worker's compensation claims will easily be approved. However, even if you follow all of the necessary procedures—from notifying your employer to seeking medical assistance—there are still a variety of reasons for the insurance company to deny your claim.

I Took All the Right Steps—Why was My Claim Denied?

Some reasons for your worker's compensation claim to be denied include:

  • Your employer denies that your injury occurred while performing your job
  • Your employer claims that the injury was caused by a preexisting injury or condition
  • There is a dispute over where or when the injury occurred
  • There is a dispute over whether you were injured at all
  • A health care professional claims that the injury did not disable you
  • Your employer has accused you of fraud or misrepresenting your injury
