Claim Denial

When workers' compensation claimants go to apply for benefits, they are often aggressively denied. Claim denials can vary based on circumstance. Sometimes it will be claimed that an injury did not happen due to work. In other situations, it will be claimed that a worker was behaving improperly or illegally.

These types of claim defenses often include:

  • Willful employee misconduct
  • An employee's attempt to injure another
  • Willful failure to properly take advantage of a safety appliance
  • Willful failure to perform duties required by statute
  • Horseplay
  • Intoxication or impairment by intoxicant during the time of accident
  • Disability or injury caused in part by undisclosed pre-existing medical condition
  • Failure to timely report an accident
