What if my NJ Workers Comp Claim is Denied?
If you believe you have been improperly denied workers' compensation benefits, you absolutely should not give up. Unfortunately, sometimes insurance companies deny claims as a matter of course, knowing that a percentage won't appeal. Should your case be wrongfully denied, you should pick up the phone and call a New Jersey workers compensation attorney right away. You need to schedule an appointment and you need to speak with them. Since most workers compensations lawyers offer free consultations, schedule one and bring with you all of the documents you have that pertain to your case in any way. This includes documents that you have sent and received, correspondence with the insurance company and your employer and copies of any medical records. If you don't possess medical records, you should write down on a piece of paper before you come to the office, the name, address, phone number and approximate dates of treatment for each doctor you have seen relevant to your injury. You should meet with your attorney and you should explain everything to them fully and provide them those materials.
