Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/01/2017 -- Atlanta residents who have recently had a workers' compensation claim denied are calling the Law Offices of Darwin F. Johnson to get the help that they need to navigate their next steps.
Workers' compensation claims can be denied for a number of reasons, not all of which are legitimate. The most common cause for a claim denial is the claim was not filed on time. Each state and some individual insurance policies have limitations on the amount of time that can pass between when the employee sustains their injury and when it is reported. Employees are required to report their injury to their employer immediately, and employers must file their claim with haste as well.
Another common reason for claim denial is that the employer may dispute the claim. The employer may dispute that the injury occurred while on-the-job, or they may claim that the injury sustained is not related to overuse, an accident, or other covered instances. If this is the case, residents should contact workers' comp lawyers in Atlanta for assistance gathering incidental evidence to support their claim.
Many employers will search for any excuse that they can use to deny a workers' compensation claim. For an employer, a successfully denied claim means less insurance spending and lowered liability.
