Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/30/2018 -- Residents of Atlanta, GA who have recently had a workers' comp claim denied are contacting the Law Offices of Darwin F. Johnson, an Atlanta workers' compensation lawyer, to get the assistance they need to navigate the next steps in the legal process.
Workers' comp claims can be denied for any number of reasons, many of which are not legitimate. One of the most frequent causes of claim denial is the allegation that the claim has not been filed on time. Every state and a few individual insurance policies have limits on the amount of time that can elapse between when the employee sustains the injury and when the claim is filed. Workers are required to report any injuries to their employer immediately; employers are required to file their claim quickly as well.
Another commonly-found reason for claim denial is that the employers themselves may dispute the claim. The employer might dispute that the injury did not occur for work-related reasons, or they might claim that the injury sustained is not related to an accident, overuse, or other covered instances. If this is the case, Georgia employees should get in touch with a workers' comp attorney in Atlanta for assistance in gathering incidental evidence to support and advance their claim.
Many employers will look for any excuse that they can utilize to deny a workers' comp claim. For an employer, a successfully-denied claim means less money spent on insurance and lowered liability.
