Ohio Workers' Compensation Denials

Talk to a Columbus workers' compensation attorney!

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.

When you turn to Charles Zamora Co. L.P.A., our Columbus workers' compensation lawyers can help you identify why your claim was denied and determine whether you have grounds for an appeal. We want to help you get the compensation you need and deserve while you heal from your injury!

Why was my claim denied?

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 even some corrupt companies out there that try to get their company doctors or insurance providers to submit false information about the true medical conditions of injured workers. Other employers will try to dispute the facts of how the injury occurred, claiming that it was caused by factors other than the victim's work duties.

Our Ohio workers' compensation attorneys and legal team work diligently to help our clients prove the truth behind their injuries so they can reverse any unmerited workers' compensation denials.
