Reasons for Workers’ Comp Case Denials

Workers’ compensation cases are denied for many reasons, most of them legitimate. However, some are denied for the wrong reasons or due to unjust technicalities. No matter why your case was denied, you can trust our Sacramento workers’ comp denial lawyers for guidance and representation.

A workers’ comp claim can be denied due to:

  • Failing to file before the filing deadline.
  • Injury was not related to work.
  • Injury did not need medical attention.
  • No wages were lost due to the injury.
  • Employer was never informed of the accident.
  • Employee intentionally suffered the injury.

Application for Adjudication of Claim

If our Sacramento workers’ compensation denial attorneys determine that your claim should not have been denied, then we can file an Application for Adjudication of Claim and a Declaration of Readiness to Proceed. With both documents filed, we will request that a workers’ compensation judge (WCJ) review your case during a hearing. Other steps can also be taken to prevent the denial, such as initial negotiations during a step called conciliation.

A positive outcome could result in:

  • Reinstatement of your workers’ compensation benefits; or,
  • Workers’ compensation settlement paid to make up for lost benefits.

Independent Contractors & Denied Claims

In California, independent contractors are not guaranteed workers’ compensation coverage and benefits in most situations. However, there have been many cases in which an employee who is owed workers’ compensation is wrongfully classified as an independent contractor. Sometimes, this mix-up has happened intentionally by an employer who wants to save money by not paying for workers’ comp.

You could be a misclassified employee if your employer requires you to:

  • Work on a set schedule at a certain location.
  • Wear a uniform and use a company vehicle.
  • Use tools and equipment provided by the company.
  • Follow exact instructions to complete tasks.

Did you file for workers’ compensation but were denied due to your status as an independent contractor? Call (888) 740-6434 and let us know. We might be able to determine that you are an employee who deserves benefits.
