An injured employee’s worst nightmare is their workers’ compensation claim will be denied. A workplace accident means missed work, medical bills, and a potentially life-changing injury. Receiving workers’ compensation for such an injury is essential for employees to continue feeding their families and providing housing for themselves and their loved ones while they recover from the injury.
Unfortunately, the companies who provide workers' compensation policies for employers have a strong incentive to deny claims whenever possible. An injured worker should always seek legal advice from a workers’ compensation attorney before filing their claim. Such an attorney can help the injured employee take all the necessary steps to ensure success for the worker. Some of the steps a lawyer will likely encourage an injured worker do include:
