Building a Strong Claim on Your Behalf

Regardless of the circumstances, a strong workers' compensation claim is founded on articulating how your medical condition was caused by your job duties. Just because an incident happened on the job does not mean it is necessarily eligible for workers' compensation. However, that does not mean you should be denied benefits when your claim does not effectively articulate your situation.

Usually, a denial occurs for several reasons. We have handled a variety of workers' compensation appeals and will help you sort through any cause for denial:

  • Pre-existing condition: When your ailment or injury is considered a pre-existing condition, and therefore not eligible for workers' compensation, we will go through the details to see if the denial can be appealed.
  • Credibility: If you were legitimately injured on the job, but your employer simply does not believe the circumstance, we will help you articulate the legitimacy of your situation and condition.
  • Course and scope: When an employer claims your actions during a workplace accident were not within the "course and scope" of your job duties, we will identify what tasks are truly necessary to complete your job.
