Atlanta Workers' Comp Denial Lawyer
What would you do if your claim was denied?
Being injured at work is a stressful, painful, and frustrating experience.
Should such an accident happen to you, your one consolation may be the
fact that you could receive
workers' compensation. By filing a workers' comp claim, you could receive payment for all
your workplace injury-related expenses. But what if your workers'
comp claim was denied by your employer? What would you do then?
Reasons for Workers' Comp Denials
Many employers are reluctant to agree to workers' compensation settlements
because they are worried that their insurance premiums will go up. As
a means of saving themselves from such an expense, they may attempt to
trick or convince their employees to settle for a smaller compensation,
or they may attempt to deny the claim altogether. Employers may also be
wary of their employees, concerned that they may be trying to work the
system and get money for a false claim, or fight for more compensation
than they deserve. If you have been injured at work, speak with your employer
immediately and show them that you are being entirely truthful. If they
still deny your claim at that point, speak with an Atlanta workers'
compensation attorney right away to learn what legal steps you should take.
