If your employer, or its insurer, denies your workers’ comp claim, you have the right to challenge the decision. In most states, workers’ compensation appeals are heard by a workers’ compensation board or an administrative law judge. If you and the insurance company are unable to resolve the dispute informally, a hearing will take place and the deciding authority will make its determination. A Washington D.C. workers’ compensation attorney in your area can review your denial and discuss the options available to you.
