The process of obtaining workers’ compensation benefits can be lengthy and time consuming. Our firm works with experienced workers’ compensation lawyers who know how to handle this process and get you the benefits you deserve.
It is possible that an employee seeking workers’ compensation benefits will be denied those benefits the first time around. If you are denied workers’ compensation benefits after an injury at work, hiring an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can help ensure that you are provided with the correct benefits and services.
What Happens After My Workers’ Compensation Claim is Denied?
Upon being denied workers’ compensation benefits, you will receive a denial letter. This letter typically explains why you were denied benefits and a description of the appeals process available to you. The letter will also contain critical information on how to proceed with your claim and collect compensation for your injury.
It is important to note that many legitimate claims are denied the first time around. Thus, it is important to understand the administrative options that you have available should your claim be denied.
Should I Hire a Lawyer if My Claim is Denied?
It is recommended that you hire a workers’ compensation lawyer in certain instances. If your claim has been denied or you wish to appeal a decision in your case, it is a good idea to have an experienced lawyer on your side.
The appeals process can be complex, and an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can help you navigate this process to get the benefits you deserve. More information on the workers’ compensation process in Rhode Island is available on the Rhode Island Workers’ Compensation Court website below:
