Has Your Claim Been Denied?

Waukesha Denied Workers' Comp Claim Lawyer

An injured worker is interested in getting his or her medical treatment paid for so that he or she can get better and return to work as soon as possible. Sometimes an injured worker's claim is quickly approved and there is no reason to get a lawyer involved.

However, sometimes the injury is more serious and takes longer to heal. Sometimes the injury is serious enough that it prevents the injured worker from returning to his or her line of work.

When the injury is serious, the financial exposure to the insurance carrier is greater. The insurance carriers are experts at developing defenses to workers' compensation claims. Insurance carriers hire claims adjusters to ensure that the carrier pays as little money as possible to resolve workers' compensation claims.

Oftentimes, the insurance carrier will send the injured worker to one of a handful of doctors it hires for what is called an Independent Medical Examination, or IME. Frequently these doctors will issue an opinion that differs from that of injured worker's doctor in regard to what further treatment is necessary or whether or not the person can return to work. It is at this point that the injured worker receives notification that his or her claim has been denied.

If an injured worker's claim has been denied after an IME or for any other reason, an application for hearing must be filed so that a judge can determine whether or not the denial is justified.
