Workers' Compensation Denial Appeals Lawyer
Fighting Workers' Comp Denials
When you are injured on the job, most individuals do as they are told by their employers and report the injury, go to the doctor as instructed and expect that they will be taken care of. Unfortunately, this isn't always what occurs. Some workers' compensation insurance companies seek to cut expenses by reducing medical treatment or deny certain claims, if possible. If you submitted your claim in good faith but were denied benefits, you have the right to file an appeal for reinstatement of your benefits. With the assistance of a knowledgeable workers' compensation attorney in San Antonio, you have a good chance of reversing your denial through the appeals process.
Texas Law provides you an opportunity for a review meeting called a Benefit Review Conference, formal hearing, and appeal within the workers' compensation commission if you and your employer, or your employer's insurer, cannot resolve a dispute. Normally a workers' compensation claim can also be appealed beyond the workers' compensation commission to a reviewing court.
Because Texas workers' compensation laws are complex, you will need the services of a competent attorney in order to preserve your rights. A thorough investigation into the facts of your accident and a careful review of your medical records will likely be required in order to fully substantiate your claim. By examining every action your employer and their workers' compensation insurance company did during the handling of your claim, our legal staff will present a complete appeal in your hearings.
