Our lawyer has the skills and knowledge needed to pursue an effective appeal. Contact us today to find out your options for appealing the denial and getting the compensation you deserve.

A claims denial does not mean that you can never receive compensation. With the right strategy and knowledge of the appeals system, we can make sure your case is completed properly so you can begin receiving your benefits.

  • Aggressively negotiate directly with your employer's insurance company

It is important to have professional and experienced legal assistance to properly handle your appeal. We can walk you through every step of the process so that you don't have to fight alone.

Understanding Your Denial

To effectively fight your case, you must understand the circumstances of your denial, which are outlined in your denial letter. We can review this information to determine the right steps to take for your case. The appeals process can be complicated and tedious, but we can help you navigate the legal system with ease.

What are some common reasons for workers' compensation denials?

  • The claim was not reported or filed on time
  • The employer disputed the claim's facts
  • Your injuries were not severe enough to constitute a workers' compensation claim
  • Some states preclude certain conditions for claims, such as stress-related conditions

As a Birmingham workers' compensation attorney, we can help you understand the reason for your claim denial and then work with you to pursue an appeal. Many people give up after their claim is denied, but with our services you can fight to get the compensation you deserve. With one-on-one attention, we can help you every step of the way.

Our lawyer can stand by your side through the following steps of the appeals process:

  • First, we can contact your employer or workers' compensation insurance office to discuss your claim. Sometimes this step can resolve the issue. Our skilled attorney knows how to talk to claims adjusters.
  • If your employer disputes your claim, we can help you file a suit with the Alabama Circuit Court in the county with jurisdiction.
  • Once the appeal is filed, you will appear before a court of Civil Appeals and your employer must respond within 30 days of the claim. We can present and argue your case in front of the judge, and provide strong medical evidence to demonstrate the severity of your work-related injury.
