Workers’ Compensation Appeals
Denied Workers’ Comp in North Carolina? We Can Help.
If you filed a workers’ compensation claim after a workplace accident, only to have it denied, we can help. Crumley Roberts represents injured workers and their families across North Carolina. We understand the appeals process and can help you pursue the benefits to which you are entitled under your state’s workers’ compensation program.
A denied workers’ comp claim can be extremely disheartening. While you are dealing with the physical problems associated with your injury, you may also be faced with expensive medical treatment and lost earnings because you are unable to work. Fortunately, you have the right to file an appeal.
Crumley Roberts is here to help you through life’s most difficult moments. Our workers’ compensation attorneys can help with denied claims by:
- Identifying the reason for the denial. When you are informed that your workers’ compensation claim has been denied, the notice should include the reason for the denial. The claims administrator may deny a claim if he or she believes that your injury is not covered by workers’ compensation. This may include injuries that are not work-related or that occur while a worker is under the influence of alcohol. Missing information or documentation could also cause a claim to be denied. Once we identify the reason for the denial, we can begin working on an appeal.
- Notifying your employer and the insurance company of the appeal. We will notify your employer and their workers’ compensation insurance company that we are appealing the denied claim. At times, we may be able to fix processing or filing errors at this stage of the claim to have it reviewed and approved.
- Representing your interests at a workers’ comp hearing. We will prepare your claim for an administrative hearing, at which point a workers’ compensation judge will review the evidence to determine whether the appeal should be granted, and your claim approved.
