Explaining the Workers Compensation Denial Form

Posted by attorney Francis Lafferty

Workers' Compensation Attorney Frank Lafferty discusses the Notice of Compensation Denial you will receive if your Workers' Compensation Claim is Denied.

There are 6 boxes the Insurance Company may check. These include that you did not suffer a work-related injury, the injury did not happen while you were working, you were not employed by the Defendant, there was no wage loss, and that you did not provide notice of your injury.

If your claim is denied, you may need to file a Claim Petition for your injury. Injuries like herniated discs, torn rotator cuffs, and meniscus injuries may not be properly diagnosed until you have an MRI, which may not take place until after your claim has been denied.

This video goes into detail and provides examples of why your claim may be denied, and how you can still get benefits you are entitled to receive.
