If you are injured and still in the healing period getting medical treatment, you can’t work because you are injured, and you don’t have any money coming in because you are not working and your worker’s comp claim has been denied. It is a Catch 22 and a vicious circle. The only way out of that circle is to get medical treatment, use your health insurance to obtain medical treatment, and get as better as possible as quickly as possible. Once you are finished with treatment and your doctors release you from their care, your appeal of the denial can be settled or set for a hearing in front of a worker’s compensation judge. You should contact us during this time, as you will need our representation in filing the appeal and maximizing the benefits available to you. We can also provide you with advice on what to do in the meantime and what your options are after the appeal.
