Where to get help when a workers' compensation claim is denied

Employers in California and throughout the United States are obligated to purchase insurance to provide benefits to employees who have been hurt on the job. Workers' compensation allows injured workers to pay medical bills and replace lost wages when an on-the-job accident occurs. Although there is  a general system in place for obtaining benefits, things can get very stressful if an employer or insurance agency attempts to deny a claim.

Imagine going through the process of reporting a workplace injury, filling out paperwork, notifying all appropriate officials and doing everything required to claim benefits to which you're entitled only to learn that your employer or a third party is denying your claim. Depending on your particular situation, you may already be facing serious challenges to attain a full physical recovery after being injured on the job. The last thing you need is to have to fight for what is rightfully yours.

That's where workers' compensation attorneys like Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld can help. Our dedicated team of lawyers has gone to bat for many injured workers who were having trouble obtaining benefits after their accidents, even though they did everything they were supposed to do to get them. If you're being told your claim has been denied, we are prepared to address the matter on your behalf in court, if needed.

Many families would have difficulty making ends meet during recovery from a workplace injury were it not for workers' compensation benefits. To be told you cannot have the money you need can make an already difficult situation even worse. If you're facing this type of struggle, you may contact our California office to request a meeting so that we can discuss the situation and help you determine how best to proceed to find a solution to your problem.
