Appealing A Denied Claim
Our attorneys represent clients until they no longer need benefits or until their case settles. The appeals process can be complex, beginning with informal and formal hearings. If necessary, the claim may be reviewed by the Workers’ Compensation Review Board. While rare, claims can proceed from this step to the Connecticut Appeals Court or Supreme Court.
We can get involved at any point in the process, but it is typically best if we get started at the initial application stage. When we help workers complete the application, we ensure that the correct information and medical reports are included. This reduces the chance that the claim will be denied.
If you claim has been denied, we can review it and determine the reason for the denial. In many cases, claims simply do not contain the correct information. We know what the Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Commission wants to see in the application. We also know that you may need to see a different doctor to get an accurate diagnosis. Under Connecticut law, you are allowed to see a doctor of your choice.
