If you have been denied workers’ compensation or you have been told that your benefits will be cut, it is important not to give up, get dejected or panic; workers’ compensation insurance companies will always try to limit or deny benefits.
They may deny that the injury was work-related or say that it is a pre-existing condition. In Minnesota, the aggravation of a pre-existing condition is still an injury for which payment is due (even if it is compensable).
How To Challenge Your Denial
You may request a hearing before the Workers’ Compensation Division of the Minnesota Department of Labor & Industry (DLI), but it is important that you undertake the process in the most compliant way to ensure that you protect yourself. Because of this, it is important to protect your rights by partnering with a skilled attorney as soon as possible.
