There are many reasons your workers’ compensation claim may be denied: filing after the time limit has expired, missing medical records, lack of adequate documentation, etc.
Regardless of the reason for a denied workers’ compensation claim, you still have options to pursue the money you need as you recover. However, to improve your chance for success upon appealing or requesting that your claim be reconsidered, it’s advisable to contact the Atlanta workers’ compensation attorney at Robbins & Associates.
Our experienced lawyer understands Georgia’s workers’ compensation laws. We can review the circumstances of your individual situation and recommend the best course of action.
If your workers compensation claim is denied, you will be sent a letter detailing the reasons for denial. Although you can request that your claim be reconsidered, you will likely not be approved without additional material to support your claim.
Should your claim be denied, you also have the right to ask for a hearing with the Georgia Board of Workers’ Compensation. Although you have up to a year to request this hearing, time is of the essence in gathering the additional medical records, witness accounts, expense reports and other material you may need if your initial claim was denied.
The representation of a workers’ compensation attorney can be instrumental in the process of assembling the evidence required to strengthen your claim while allowing you to focus on your rehabilitation.
