Virginia Workers' Compensation Appeal Attorney
Reverse a Denied Workers’ Compensation Claim
Every year, numerous workers’ compensation claims are denied. Many of these denials are valid because there are many people who try to cheat the system in order to receive money that they don’t need or deserve. On the other hand, many injured employees are wrongfully denied workers’ compensation for valid work-related injuries because of errors made on the applications or by the party processing the claims. If your claim has been denied, do not lose hope. A Virginia workers’ compensation lawyer from Agnew & Rosenberger PLLC can help you file an appeal to reverse the denial of your claim.
How to File a Workers’ Compensation Appeal
Once your workers’ compensation has been denied, you need a skilled lawyer to help you examine your case in order to fix any mistakes. Many denials occur simply because the individual made a mistake on his or her paperwork. The Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission has also been known to make mistakes that result in an unjust denial.
Either way, you will need to file an appeal to schedule a hearing. At your hearing, you or your attorney will present your case and explain why you deserve workers’ compensation. If the mistakes have all been properly resolved and a strong case is presented on your behalf, your denial could be reversed and you could receive the compensation that you need.
It can help you to have the following during the appeal:
- Proof of the accident at work
- Proof of liability such as a defective product or untrained worker
- Proof of injury
