Was Your New Jersey Workers Compensation Claim Denied?
Even following all the proper procedures for your workers compensation claim, there are still times where your claim will be denied. Some of the more common reasons include missing deadlines or your injury is not severe enough for a claim. In many cases, you are denied because your employer is disputing the claim.
The fact is many employers and insurance companies will try anything to prevent paying your claim. They can claim that your accident didn’t happen on the job or the injury was not caused by the accident. Or even you didn’t have surgery for your workplace injury, even though you did seek medical attention after. Whatever the cause may be, you’re now stuck with medical bills and not sure what to do next.
