A denied claim is just the beginning of our fight to protect your rights. You need the right legal strategies and advocacy to fight a wrongful denial of a workers compensation claim.

Many workers compensation claims are improperly denied for a variety of reasons:

  • You did not seek medical treatment for your injury immediately
  • You did not provide all facts to show employer that injury arose from doing your work tasks /responsibilities (even at home locations)
  • You did not notify your employer of your injury right away
  • You did not file an work injury accident report or complete a Workers’ Compensation application within days of the injury
  • You did not provide all of the requested information to your employer or workers compensation carrier
  • The claims adjuster or employer is denying your current claim because you had a pre-existing condition
  • Your injury occurred at a location away from your worksite
  • Your injury was not obvious until later after the incident or occurred  outside of your normal work hours
  • The employer or Workers compensation carrier is contesting the nature of your injury arguing that it is not serious or arising to a permanent injury
  • The claim adjuster or employer is alleging work misconduct or horseplay , to contest the claim
  • The claim adjuster or employer is alleging job abandonment if you fail to report to work or properly notify the employer of the work injury

Many denials of workers compensation claims arise from home injuries and telecommuting. More and more employees are doing their jobs at home. Many workers are being injured doing work tasks and responsibilities from remote locations. There is New Jersey law stating that as long as the employee is engaged in direct performance of assigned work duties, it does not legally matter if their job duties are performed on or off their work premises.

We will investigate your work injury, gather the important documentation to assess if the denial was proper, and file the appropriate application to fight for your legal worker compensation benefits. Do not attempt this process alone.  Contact our office so we take the necessary steps to fight for your legal benefits of wages, medical expense and a permanent injury benefit.
