Denied Workers' Compensation?

The workers' compensation system in California is designed to help compensate workers who become injured on the job while protecting employers from lawsuits. While good in theory, without adequate representation or a full knowledge of your legal rights you may not get the full benefits you are owed under the law.

Insurers and employers who provide workers' compensation insurance can deny a claim for a variety of reasons. They may claim that:

  • You do not have enough evidence that you are injured
  • You were not injured while at work
  • You were terminated prior to filing a workers' comp claim

Employers and their insurance companies continually attempt to limit benefits they must pay under workers' compensation. Like all insurers, the fewer benefits they pay out, the more money they make. This means if there is any reason to deny a claim, they will.
