Denied Workers’ Compensation Claims
Illinois’ no-fault workers’ compensation system affirms that an injured employee has a right to compensation for an on-the-job injury regardless of who was at fault. Despite this rule, injured workers still end up with denied workers’ compensation claims. If you’re claim has recently been denied, reach out to our skilled Springfield workers compensation lawyers for a free case consultation and for help figuring out your next step.
How Does Workers’ Comp get Denied?
A worker may be denied workers’ comp benefits when the court does not see a clear connection between the injury and the workplace. This often happens with repetitive stress injuries, where physical impairments or pain happen over time as the result of repetitive motions at work. It is also seen in cases of injured workers who have multiple, compounding medical issues.
Trying to present your case without experienced counsel is challenging. It is very hard to get results when you do not have a thoroughly prepared case that includes substantial medical records and employment practices to back it up. We are equipped to draw on legal and medical resources that substantiate your claim during initial filing, will hold up in court and will be effective in workers’ compensation appeals.
What Should I Do If I’ve Been Denied Workers’ Compensation?
The opposing side in cases of denied claims is the workers’ compensation insurance company. These companies are motivated to pay out as little money as possible for workers’ comp claims, even to deserving injury victims who just want what is fair. They know how to work the system because they work on these kinds of cases frequently.
If you have an experienced lawyer on your side who can demonstrate your injury demands compensation, you can have a denied claim appealed. You can recover compensation. We believe injured workers deserve to be heard. That is why our Springfield personal injury attorneys at Kanoski Bresney have devoted their practice to helping injured people get the care and compensation they deserve.
