Reasons for Denial
There are different reasons that you can be denied compensation. Some reasons for a denial are legitimate: there may not be enough evidence, medical or otherwise, that you actually suffered injury from the accident or that you sustained the injury while performing your job duties. Or you may have filed a claim after the deadline and your compensation claim may be denied. Some reasons for denial are incorrect and can be litigated by appealing the denial. We have substantial experience helping clients when their claim is rejected for compensation from a workplace injury. If filing for an appeal does not appear to be in your best interest, we can discuss with you alternative forms of compensation that could be better options.
Appealing a Workers' Compensation Denial
Appealing a denial involves laying out the specifics of your situation to an administrative law judge who will hear your case and make a decision. If you are dissatisfied with the law judge's decision, you can appeal a second time to the commissioners of the Workers' Compensation Board. If you are still dissatisfied with the results of this appeal, you can appeal the decision a third time to the New York State Appellate Division. Each of these can be extremely complicated and you are bound by a time limit to appeal to each authority. It is vitally important that you have skilled legal presence on your side that will fight for your rights and assist you throughout this process.
