If you are the victim of a workplace accident, you are entitled to a number or benefits. Those benefits can include payment of your medical expenses and compensation for your lost wages. But to get those benefits, you need to know your rights and follow some basic steps.
Individuals who are injured in a workplace accident have the right to seek worker’s compensation if your injury occurred while you are on duty. Most worker’s compensation claims are approved of quickly and the injured worker’s medical bills are paid immediately and the worker begins receiving compensation for their lost wages. But what happens when my claim is denied or an insurer refuses to pay for a procedure or treatment? What can you do if worker’s comp denies you benefits.
A worker’s compensation insurer can deny your claim be alleging your injuries didn’t occur on the job, are not as severe as you allege or you have a preexisting condition. Regardless of why your claim is denied, you have the right to appeal the decision. If your claim is denied, you have the right to file an appeal with Massachusetts’s Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development (EOLWD).
There are so many hurdles to overcome before injured workers can begin recovering receiving worker’s comp benefits. That is why USAttorneys recommends you consult with a worker’s compensation lawyer early in the process. They can evaluate your case, estimate the value of your claim and counter any assertions that you don’t deserve worker’s compensation benefits.
