Why Are Workers’ Compensation Claims Denied?
Workers’ compensation claims can be denied for a number of reasons. The most common reasons for an employer or insurance company to deny a claim are:
- Your injury did not occur while at work or while performing your job duties
- Where your injury occurred and when it happened is in question
- Your injury was caused by a preexisting condition or injury
- A health care professional determined that you were not disabled as a result of a work-related injury
- Whether or not you sustained an injury is being disputed
