As an injured worker, you are eligible for a number of rights, such as
monetary compensation for your medical bills. However, not all workers’
compensation claims are accepted as they should be. Common reasons for
a denied workers’ compensation claim include but are not limited
to: your work injury was concluded to be unrelated to work, you do not
require any medical treatment, your injury did not force you to take any
time off, and more. The decision is made by insurance companies, in which
some are more prone to denying even the most viable of workers’
compensation claims, in the hopes the person who filed will give up and
simply move on, taking the rejection as a loss.
However, our legal team at Odegaard Braukmann Law, PLLC believes you should
do everything possible to appeal a workers’ compensation denial.
You can do so by contacting your employer’s insurance carrier to
discuss the denial, to determine the cause. Down the line, you will be
expected to participate in a hearing, in which your Billings workers’
compensation attorney will advocate on your behalf. During this time,
you will be expected to present proper medical evidence of your injury
or illness and must do so within the expected time frame.
