Is it Worth it to File an Appeal for My Denied North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Claim?

July 29 , 2022

Absolutely! There are many reasons why it is worth it to appeal a denied workers’ compensation claim in North Carolina. Our Charlotte workers’ compensation attorneys at the Ramsay Law Firm, P.A. can help you identify the reason your claim was denied, and help seek a reversal of that decision.

Reasons to File an Appeal of a North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Claim Denial

If you have been hurt at work, and your initial North Carolina workers’ compensation claim has been denied, you are entitled to file an appeal to pursue the benefits you deserve.

First, it is important to understand why the workers’ compensation claim was denied, so our Charlotte attorneys can strategically appeal to the insurance company or, if necessary, the North Carolina Industrial Commission for a reversal of its decision.

Common reasons to appeal a denied workers’ compensation claim include:

  • The claim was denied due to insufficient information, which may be resubmitted.
  • There is new information or evidence to support the initial claim.
  • You believe your employer, or its insurer, overlooked information or evidence that was included in your claim.

Another important reason to appeal a denied workers’ compensation claim in North Carolina is if you are not receiving certain benefits you are entitled to or if you believe your worker impairment rating was not properly calculated.

If the insurance company denied your initial workers’ compensation claim, we are going to try and get them to reverse that decision, because that is the fastest way to get benefits for you. If we cannot get them to reverse their decision, we can file a Form 33, requesting a hearing before the Industrial Commission and present your case to a judge who can force the insurance company to award benefits to you.
