Seeking Workers’ Compensation Reversal? Get Help from a Richmond, Virginia, Attorney

You may have found that your claim for Virginia Workers’ Compensation benefits has been denied. To learn if you have a chance at reversing that decision, you should consult with a Richmond, Virginia, attorney as soon as possible.

There are several reasons why a Virginia Workers’ Compensation claim can be denied. Whether it’s insufficient evidence of disability, a lack of clarity as to whether the injury happened at work or questions about a pre-existing condition, these can lead to a denial.

However, you may be able to reverse that decision. The first step is to contact the insurance company to learn the specifics of why it was denied. You may be able to come to a resolution without going any further.

If not, your next step will be to go through an appeals process. The format of this process will depend on the state you live in. You may be required to file an appeal within a certain time period. Or there may be other conditions that must be met.

To improve your chance at a favorable outcome, you should enlist the help of an attorney who has experience with Workers’ Compensation claims. You especially will need legal counsel if the appeals process results in a hearing.

A Workers Compensation reversal also can happen after a claimant’s benefits have been accepted. It may come to light that the employer doesn’t have to pay them. If you are in this situation, you would benefit from speaking to a Richmond, Virginia attorney about your case.
