What Should I Do If My Workers’ Compensation Claim Was Denied?
Getting approved for workers’ compensation following a work-related injury can be difficult. Your employer and the company’s insurance company may try to minimize or outright deny your claim. If your workers’ comp claim has been denied, you need capable legal help to fight for what you deserve.
The attorneys of Berman & Russo have spent decades representing working people in Connecticut. We have more than 50 years of combined experience in workers’ compensation law, including appeals. With offices in South Windsor and Hartford, we represent injured workers throughout the state.
Did Your Employer Turn Down Your Workers’ Comp Claim?
Employers in dangerous fields like construction and manufacturing often try to avoid liability when an employee gets hurt on the job. Common tactics include claiming that the worker is exaggerating the harm they have suffered, or that their injuries are not work-related. Thus, being denied a workers’ comp claim is not uncommon. You have the right to appeal the decision and hold a hearing before the state Workers’ Compensation Commission.
When we take on a denied claim, we prepare a thorough and persuasive case. We will look at your medical records and any other evidence to show a direct connection between your injuries and your work duties. Whether you were hurt in an accident or your injuries built up over time, we will show the exact amount and duration of workers’ comp to which you are entitled. Our ability as negotiators and litigators will give you the best chance of securing rightful benefits so you can recover from your injuries without worrying about paying your bills.
