What If My Workers’ Comp Claim Has Been Denied?

While plenty of employers do their duty by carrying workers’ comp insurance, the insurance companies themselves may then try to protect their bottom line by denying legitimate claims. If you have faced such a claim denial, then you can appeal. This is certainly a step you don’t want to take without an attorney, however, as appealing a denied workers’ comp claim is as complex process with tight deadlines.

Whatever challenges you face in your work injury case, our experienced Sacramento lawyers are here to help. Call (916) 507-2264 to reach the Law Office of Vincent Van Ho today.

Step-by-Step Guidance for Injured Workers

If you’re not sure if you qualify for workers’ compensation benefits, it can’t hurt to talk to a lawyer. Your employer or an insurance adjuster may not be great places to turn to for legal advice. Far too many companies will err on the side of denying workers the benefits that they are actually entitled to.

In general, these are the requirements for qualifying for workers’ compensation

  • Your injury or illness must be due to on-the-job activity
  • You need to report the medical condition within 30 days
  • You must work for an employer who carries workers’ comp insurance
  • You must also be labeled as an employee, not an independent contractor

In far too many cases, however, employees are misclassified in order to wrongfully deny them compensation. And even in cases where your employer is not insured, you may still have other legal options for recovering financial benefits, such as through suing your employer. In any case where you aren’t eligible for workers’ comp, you may be able to file a lawsuit instead. Make sure you are aware of your full rights.

Workers’ Comp Benefits in Sacramento, Santa Clara & Solano Counties

After filing for workers’ compensation, if you’ve been approved, you could recover benefits for:

  • Medical bills related to the occupational illness or work injury
  • Temporary disability (covers some, not all, of wages lost during your recovery period)
  • Permanent disability (if there is no total recovery and you’re left with long-term impairments that hinder you from performing your full job)

If an employee dies from an on-the-job accident, then surviving relatives who depended financially on the deceased employee may be able to apply for death benefits. These can cover the costs of burial as well as provide weekly payments, much like providing temporary disability benefits.
