Denial of Workers' Compensation
Have you been denied workers' compensation benefits?
The workers' compensation program offers injured employees the security of being able to pay for their medical bills and to support their families while they are forced out of work. Unfortunately, a large percentage of valid claims are wrongfully denied every year, leaving the worker frustrated and struggling to make ends meet. If you find yourself in this position, you may be able to turn the situation around by contacting The Law Office of Wm. Todd Berry, APC for help. We have more than seven decades of experience, and a team that includes a former workers' compensation judge. A
Fresno workers' compensation lawyer from our firm can represent you in an appeal of the decision, which could result in an award of the benefits you deserve.
Some claims are denied on the grounds that the insurance company believes that the claimant is attempting to defraud the system, but most denials are due to the simple fact that the investigator did not receive sufficient evidence to prove that the injury is eligible for the benefits of workers' compensation. An attorney from our firm may be able to resolve the matter by helping you correct the application to clearly reflect the fact that you are qualified to receive
temporary disability or
permanent disability payments.

When a claim has been denied, the individual has recourse and can appeal the refusal of benefits. It may be possible to settle the matter in a hearing before a workers' compensation administrative law judge, who will review the original decision and issue any ruling necessary to correct the situation. The Division of Workers' Compensation also makes it possible for cases to be heard by the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board (WCAB), in the event that you are dissatisfied with the judge's ruling. Successfully appealing a denial of benefits can be difficult, but we have the skill and experience you need on your side.
