Challenging A Denied Workers’ Comp Claim

In theory, workers’ compensation provides benefits for any work-related injury, without regard to fault. In reality, employers and their insurance carriers commonly treat injured workers with suspicion and deny workers’ compensation claims without good reason.

If your claim has been rejected, you are in good hands at the law firm of Koszdin, Fields, Sherry & Katz. Workers’ compensation is all we do, and all of the firm’s partners are board-certified specialists* in this field. We have successfully appealed denied claims for injured workers throughout Southern California.

Give us a call today at our office in Van Nuys to arrange a free consultation with one of our experienced lawyers. We help clients throughout Greater Los Angeles.

What Reason Are They Giving For Denying Your Claim?

We can advocate for you if (a) your claim was denied outright, (b) you were denied authorization for medical treatment, (c) your benefits or disability rating is not accurate, or (d) your employer is trying to terminate your benefits.

Our knowledgeable attorneys know how to counter the common justifications for denial or termination of workers’ compensation claims:

  • The injury was not work-related
  • The injury is not serious enough to miss work
  • The injury is a pre-existing condition
  • The employee did not report the injury to the supervisor
  • The employee did not seek medical treatment promptly
  • The employee waited too long to file a workers’ comp claim
  • The employee is no longer disabled or restricted

Our lawyers have successfully appealed all types of injury and illness cases, including repetitive motion injury, toxic exposure, mental stress and compensable consequence claims.

We Can Use Our Experience To Appeal Your Rejected Disability Claim

Do not take no for an answer or let the insurance companies take advantage of you. We will intervene directly with the employer or insurer to get satisfaction, and we will represent you in proceedings before the Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) and the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board (WCAB).
