Was Your Workers' Comp Claim Denied?
When workers are injured on the job, they typically become eligible for workers' compensation. These are resources that provide injured workers with medical care and other financial support while they are unable to work, or while they are unable to work to their usual capacity. Unfortunately, there are many people who are denied benefits even when they have legitimate work-related injuries. There are many reasons as to why this can occur, which are described further below.

Workers' Compensation Denial Reasons
In Ohio, there are various reasons that a workers' compensation claim can be denied. A claim can be denied if it is determined that:
- The worker was not actually injured.
- The worker was hurt, but the injury was not work-related.
- The worker recklessly caused his or her own injury, such as by working while intoxicated or engaging in dangerous horseplay while on the job.
There are many cases in which employers try to get workers' compensation claims denied so that they do not have to suffer from the financial consequences.
There are many defense medical examiners who will say that an injury is really just natural aging, or a pre-existing condition that was not aggravated by the work-related accident. The physicians being used by employers to provide opinions about the workers’ compensation claim have only the employer’s interests in mind. These defense medical examiners sometimes are no longer practicing physicians; rather, they merely provide exams and reports to the companies that request their services.
