If you have been injured in the workplace then you are entitled to certain benefits by law. However, even if this is the case, every day people across Minnesota are faced with denied worker’s compensation claims. What this means is that you may not be getting any, or the right amount of compensation for your injury. This can put a huge financial strain on your family and a huge emotional burden on yourself. This is the last thing you deserve during this already difficult time in your life.
It is not uncommon to have your worker’s compensation claim denied. If there is any minor issue with paperwork or crack in your claim, then the insurance companies will find it and put a stop to your compensation. This is their job and they are extremely good at it.
However, our work comp attorneys are better. We know what you can expect from the worker’s compensation claim process and what you need to do to ensure that your claim is accepted. If you are dealing with a denied insurance claim the good news is that you do have options – if your worker’s compensation claim has been denied, then you can file an appeal.
The appeals process starts with a Notice of Insurer’s Primary Liability Determination form. This will give you an idea of why your claim was denied. You have the right to contact the insurance agency and demand answers and get help through the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry. However, you may find that this avenue leaves you even more frustrated and confused with the whole process.
