Workers’ comp claims can be denied for a whole host of reasons. You might not have been able to notify your employer immediately after your injury, you might not have sought medical attention right away, or maybe you’re just up against an insurance company trying to prove your injuries are old. Whatever the case may be, though, knowing what to do after your workers’ comp claim is denied can save you from any further setbacks.
Has Your Employer/Insurance Provider Denied Your Claim?
If your employer is the party responsible for denying your claims, asserting that they’re invalid because you waited too long to report your injury, there are unreliable witnesses telling a different story, or there are biased third-party medical examiners trying to prove you’re not as injured as you claim, get ready to fight back. The truth is, according to Michigan law, you have up to 90 days to give an employer notice of your injury, and two years to files an actual workers’ compensation claim. Also, witness statements are hardly ever recognized as reliable evidence in workers’ comp cases.
