Denied Benefits For Workers' Compensation

If you suffered an on-the-job injury, you are probably worried about how you will move forward financially. You are likely concerned about paying your medical bills and managing your daily living expenses, and you are probably relying on workers' compensation to help make ends meet.

When that is the situation you are in, few things are more unsettling than learning your request for workers' compensation was denied. Thankfully, even if your request was denied, you may still have options for receiving the financial benefits you need.

At the law office of Jay Gervasi, P.A., we work with injured workers and their families in Greensboro and throughout North Carolina to help them receive workers' compensation benefits after their initial requests were denied.

Why Workers' Compensation Claims Are Denied

Of course, some injuries do not qualify for coverage under workers' compensation. On the other hand, many claims are denied when they should not be. Although insurance adjusters may give numerous reasons for denying workers' compensation benefits, it typically boils down to one reason: failing to effectively present the facts of your situation effectively. Attorney Jay Gervasi helps injured people receive compensation after their original claims were denied for:

  • Failing to prove the injuries were suffered while they were working
  • Failing to prove the severity of their injuries
  • Failing to prove they are unable to work because of their injuries

If one insurance adjuster told you that you are not eligible for benefits, or if you have already been denied benefits for workers' compensation, an experienced lawyer may be able to guide you through the process successfully.
