Los Angeles Workers' Comp Denial Lawyers
Denials of Workers' Compensation Claims
Any employee who files a workers' compensation claim runs the risk of being denied benefits. All Los Angeles workers' comp claims are reviewed to determine their validity and the value of benefits which should be bestowed upon the injured worker, and this is valuable in the face of false claims that would otherwise take advantage of benefits that should be reserved for people who actually need them. Unfortunately, however, some employers and their insurance companies may try to take advantage of employees that do not have legal representation and may unfairly deny valid workers' comp claims. At Pacific Attorney Group, we are dedicated to helping workers whose claims have been denied by asserting their rights and taking immediate legal action.
After a workers' comp denial, an injured worker has the right to file an appeal. In these situations, it is highly recommended that you consult with an attorney experienced in handling these cases, as you may be able to reverse this decision. However, the insurance company or your employer may have attorneys of their own who may attempt to prove that your claim is invalid. Having a workers' comp attorney to assert your rights as an injured worker may have a significant impact in the reversal of the denial and your ability to recover the benefits to which you are entitled.
