What To Do If Your Workers’ Comp Claim Is Denied
If you have been denied workers’ compensation or told that your benefits will be cut, it is important not to give up 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 preexisting condition. In Minnesota, the aggravation of a preexisting 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 and Industry (DLI), but it is important to do this properly. Our attorney can work with you and ensure that no mistakes or errors are made during the appeals process.
At Thill & Freeman, PLLC, we have years of experience helping workers obtain workers’ compensation benefits after they were initially denied. We will help you request a conference or hearing and will represent you in those proceedings to do everything to ensure that you obtain the benefits and compensation to which you are entitled.
It is important to note that this process can be drawn out, particularly if it proceeds to a trial, and it is important to be diligent with all deadlines. We will work with you throughout the process, keeping you abreast of all updates and informing you of all aspects of your case.
