If your benefits have been denied, you may face significant financial hardship as you struggle with medical bills and disability. We are here to help.
Has Your Workers’ Compensation Claim Been Denied?

- The injury is due to a pre-existing condition
- The injury did not take place at work
- Your injury allows you to do other work
- You did not give the employer notice of your injury within 30 days
Our workers’ compensation lawyers are well versed in the tactics insurance companies employ to limit or outright deny workers’ compensation benefits. We will put our skill and experience to work to help you obtain the benefits you need to pay your medical bills and put food on the table.
