Worker’s Compensation Claims and Appeals


Making a workers compensation claim or filing an appeal can be frustrating and confusing. It can be difficult for individuals to navigate the complicated bureaucracy of the Department of Labor & Industries or deal with self-insured employers, some of whom are aggressively hostile, on their own.

Some doctors do not understand what benefits are available under the law or do not have experience in helping their patients get the right benefits. “Independent Medical Examinations” are often performed by doctors who only work for the government or self-insured employers. Their opinions are often biased, resulting in unfair denial of benefits.

If your claim has been denied or closed, call on us to help. Closing a claim is wrong when you still need medical treatment, have more disability than what is awarded, or when you still cannot work even after you have reached maximum medical improvement. We know how to evaluate all of these situations and help you get the benefits you deserve.

There is only a 60-day period to appeal claim denials or claim closure and these time limits are strictly enforced.If your claim is denied or is closed without paying proper benefits, contact us immediately.
