Claim Denial & Appeals

San Diego Claim Denial & Appeals Lawyer


Workers across various industries face the possibility of getting sick or injured as a result of their occupations every day. In order to provide sick or injured workers with the resources they need for medical bills and time off work, employers in California with more than one full-time employee are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Although this system was designed to support workers injured on the job without having to prove negligence by their employers or coworkers, benefits are often denied when employees file a claim.

Workers’ compensation claims are often denied for a number of reasons, including:

  • Your injury was caused by a preexisting condition
  • A health provider concluded you were not disabled as a result of a work injury
  • Your injury did not occur while you were working
  • When or where you sustained your injury is disputed
  • Whether you sustained an injury at all is disputed

Being denied a workers’ compensation claim can understandably leave you feeling disappointed and worried that you may never recover the damages caused by your accident, but don’t give up. The experienced claim denial and appeals lawyer at Leigh Law Firm in San Diego can help you file an appeal and establish proof of your work-related injury.
