Workers’ Comp Claim Denied? Fight Back!
Claims are denied for various reasons. The employer may challenge whether the injury was work-related or whether you are too disabled to work. The insurer may deny the claim because you failed to report the incident or seek medical attention in a timely fashion, because of incomplete documentation, or on the basis of pre-existing conditions or prior injury. Sometimes workers are denied specific medical treatment or denied benefits for partial disability or permanent disability.
Our attorneys will review your workers’ compensation claim, your medical records and the Notice of Denial to see if your claim can be salvaged through administration channels. If the insurer will not budge, we will represent you in hearings and appeals to win your entitled benefits. This is a complex area of law that requires specific knowledge and experience. Attorney Edward Magram has practiced in work injury law since 1984 and he is certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a specialist in workers’ compensation.
