Common Reasons Workers' Compensation Claims Get Denied

Understanding why workers' compensation claims get denied is crucial for anyone who has faced this setback. Employers and insurance companies may deny claims for various reasons, including:

  • Lack of Timely Reporting: Failing to report the injury promptly can be grounds for denial. Employers and insurance providers often require immediate notification to initiate the claims process.
  • Dispute of Work-Relatedness: Some claims are denied if the employer disputes that the injury is work-related. This can be a contentious issue, and legal representation becomes essential to establish the connection between the injury and the workplace.
  • Pre-existing Conditions: Denials may occur when insurance companies argue that the injury is related to a pre-existing condition rather than a workplace incident. 
  • Insufficient Medical Evidence: Incomplete or insufficient medical documentation can lead to claim denials. 
  • Missed Filing Deadlines: Missing crucial filing deadlines can result in a denied claim.

  • This includes collecting medical records, witness statements, and expert opinions.
  • Building a robust case is essential for a successful appeal.
