Avoid Common Mistakes That Cost
Among some of the many ways handling your workers’ comp case alone can be difficult, making menial mistakes that could end in a denied claim are by far the most common. Having a team of expert attorneys on your side who specialize in workers’ compensation claims is key.
Our attorneys compiled a quick and easy summary of the 7 ways you can easily sabotage your workers’ compensation claim when filing it on your own:
- Missing the deadline to file or report your claim.
- Not seeking appropriate medical care or medical care at all.
- Using an unauthorized medical provider for workers’ compensation cases.
- Claiming an injury or illness that doesn’t meet the requirements.
- Not providing sufficient witness statements to support your report.
- Filing a claim for an injury or illness that happened outside of your work-related tasks or workplace.
- Failing to have a significant source of evidence regarding your inability to work due to your injury or illness.
In some cases, denial comes from your employers’ inability to follow through with their end of the claim or because they provided information or evidence that your claim isn’t legitimate.
