Why Was My Claim Denied?

Like other insurance claims, your workers' compensation claim must be accepted by your employer's insurer for you to receive benefits. You will know if your workers’ compensation claim has been denied if you receive a letter in the mail from the insurance company stating the denial and the reason behind it.

Common reasons for claim denial include:

  • Your diagnosis is allegedly a pre-existing condition
  • You allegedly failed to report the injury on time
  • There is allegedly not enough medical information to accept the injury and the claim
  • There is allegedly not enough proof that the disability was caused by injury at work

Responses to Workers’ Compensation Claim Denials

Insurer denials can be very upsetting and cause financial crises. Read the insurer’s stated reasons carefully. Is the basis for denial true? If not true, what evidence supports this? You can file an “appeal” from the insurers’ denial and you can request the Vermont Department of Labor to order the insurer to pay benefits. At the Law Office of Charles L. Powell PLLC, I will inform you of your rights and how to proceed with an appeal.
