What happens if I am denied by Workers’ Compensation or an insurance company?
Unfortunately, workers’ compensation denials are not uncommon. When you’re denied much-needed benefits while coping with a work-related injury, you may feel confused, frustrated, and defeated. For help, get in touch with an experienced workers’ comp lawyer as soon as possible. In Illinois, after a workers’ comp denial, workers must request a hearing with an Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission (WCC) arbitrator. Prior to requesting the hearing, you must file an Application for Adjustment of Claim along with proof that you’ve delivered a copy of your application to your employer. Once this is completed an arbitrator will be assigned to your case. An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer will help you through this entire process, giving you a better chance of recovering the benefits you need.
