Workers' Compensation Claim Denied? Don't Give Up.

It is shocking and disappointing to receive a letter from your employer's workers' compensation insurance carrier telling you that your workers' compensation claim has been delayed, or even worse, denied. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for insurance carriers or claims administrators to find some basis for denying a claim.

Insurance carriers use a variety of reasons to deny workers' compensation claims, including:

  • The accident causing the injury did not happen at work.
  • The injury is the result of a pre-existing condition, not a workplace accident.
  • The injured employee failed to report the accident in a timely manner.
  • The insurance company disputes the existence of the injury.

However, just because your claim is denied doesn't mean you don't have a valid one. At Morizio Law Firm, P.C., we represent injured workers throughout Connecticut who have had their claims unfairly denied.

Contacting a knowledgeable workers' compensation attorney early in the process can maximize your chances of success and decrease the likelihood of having your claim denied. We represent injured workers at every stage of the workers' compensation process, from the initial injury to settlement or appeals and beyond.

If you have been injured at work, do not rely solely on the statements of the insurance adjuster to explain the law to you. He or she may only be stating the position of your employer or insurance carrier, not necessarily the law that is relevant to your claim. Take advantage of a free consultation before relying on an insurance carrier for information about your claim.
