Do you have a case?

Why Was My Workers' Compensation Claim Denied?

There are multiple reasons your claim may have been denied:

  • If you missed any deadlines for filing your claim
  • If there is some doubt about whether or not your injuries were caused at work
  • If your injuries are not covered by California workers' compensation laws
  • If you did not file your claim until after you had left or been fired from your job

If you believe your claim has been wrongfully denied, contact the Law Offices of Bryan K. Leiser today to discuss your claim and what we can do to help!

What is the Workers' Comp Appeals Process?

If the insurance company has denied your workers' compensation application for benefits or has denied your request for surgery, the reason for the denial will affect the pursuit of an appeal.

  • You can seek another opinion from other doctors within you network if you are denied benefits based on the doctor's analysis.
  • You can appeal to the California Division of Workers' Compensation if you have still been denied compensation.
  • If you are in disagreement with the amount of compensation you are allowed to receive, you can appeal to the California Department of Industrial Relations. During this formal hearing, you will have one last opportunity to challenge the result.
