While it may seem obvious to you that your injury should be covered by worker’s comp, your employer or their insurance company may disagree. This can turn what should be an easy process into a fight. It’s not a fight you should give up, though, because you deserve compensation. If your employer or their insurance company is pushing back on your worker’s comp claim, here are a few things to do.
The first thing to do is to keep calm. Don’t drop your claim, regardless of what your employer may tell you to do. If you are denied, remember that there is an appeal process you can go through. It can be hard to prepare for a legal battle while you’re also recovering from an injury but don’t give up.
You should gather as much evidence as you can regardless, but having proof and witness testimony to back up your case is especially important if your employer is fighting you on your claim. You need photos of your injury, test results, doctor’s notes, and anything else you can present that backs up your claim and makes it clear that you deserve compensation.
Missing a deadline can result in your case being dismissed. Don’t give your employer any excuse to say you were late on paperwork. If they ask for a certain document, get it to them as soon as you can. The faster you are in submitting paperwork, the faster your case can move forward and the less reason anyone has to deny your claim.
