Denied Workers' Compensation Claims

Charlotte Denied Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

Offering Our Clients Options

What can happen if the insurance company doesn’t believe that you have a compensable claim after you’ve been injured on the job? Most likely, they will deny your case.

Some common examples of reasons for denial include:

  • The employer may say that you were not working for them at the time you were hurt.
  • The insurance company may say that you were never hurt at all and that you were lying about your injury.
  • They may say that your injury doesn’t meet one of the three theories of liability under the Workers’ Compensation Act. The Plaintiff (the injured worker) has the obligation to show that they were injured by an accident, by a specific traumatic incident, or an occupational disease.

If you were hurt at work in North Carolina and the insurance company denies your claim, our Charlotte workers’ compensation attorneys can help reverse that decision, because that is the fastest way to get benefits for you. If we can’t 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.

What happens to you in the meantime? You’re in a tough position. Workers’ compensation will not be responsible for paying for any medical bills or for any time out of work. That must come out of your pocket during the period of the denial. Ramsay Law Firm, P.A. can help our clients by seeking low-cost clinics and encourage them, if it’s possible, to file for unemployment or return to work in a light-duty job so they have some money during this difficult time.
