Denied Workers' Compensation Claim Lawyer in South Carolina - We Know Results Matter
What should I do if my South Carolina workers' comp claim is denied? It's a common question among workers injured on the job and their families in Beaufort, Bluffton and other communities across the Lowcountry. Workplace accidents happen every day across the state. However, no matter what type of on-the-job injury you or a loved one suffered, there's a chance that your workers' compensation claim will be denied.
Insurance companies and employers deny claims for any number of reasons. If you have an injury or illness that came on gradually, you may find you have an even harder time proving your claim to your employer or its insurance company.
How our law firm can help with your denied claim
At Twenge + Twombley, our experienced South Carolina workers' compensation lawyers aren't intimidated by employers or insurance adjusters who try to downplay your injuries. We know all the ways the law applies to workplace injury cases. We will not be put off by a complicated claims process. If necessary, one of our experienced attorneys can represent you at a workers' compensation hearing. We can speak for you in a hearing before the South Carolina Workers' Compensation Commission, which will hear both sides and consider evidence, including records and witness testimony. The Commission then will make a determination.
The following are some common reasons an insurance carrier might deny a claim:
- A treating physician says the insured worker can return to work before he or she is physically able to do so.
- The employer disputes the claim by arguing that the injury was not job-related or that the claim was never reported.
- The insurance adjuster may argue that the injury did not occur on the job.
