Navigating the Workers' Comp Appeals Process

Our Lawyers Can Help You Win Your Workers' Comp Case!

When you have been injured in a job-related accident, you are eligible for workers' compensation benefits to cover medical costs and lost wages. Injured employees that choose to prepare and file a workers' compensation claim on their own often find the process extremely tedious, and even overwhelming. Without a thorough understanding of compensation laws and procedures, claims can end up being submitted without sufficient medical evidence and documentation, resulting in denials.

A workers' comp lawyer should be contacted immediately if you claim has been denied. You will need a competent attorney to review your case and help prepare an appeal. The appeals process can also be daunting without the knowledgeable assistance of a workers' comp lawyer.

Why Would a Workers' Comp Claim Be Denied?

Compensation for injuries suffered in workplace accidents can be critical to maintaining your financial solvency during a health care crisis. Mounting medical costs can become overbearing without benefits, prevent you from receiving the quality care you need, and impede your recovery.

The Division of Workers' Compensation will deny a claim if they determine:

  • The injury or illness was not caused by an accident on the job
  • The injury wasn't serious enough to require compensation
  • The injury or illness was caused by a pre-existing condition

Workers' Compensation Appeal FAQ

Q. How long do workers' comp appeals take? Receiving the final ruling from your appeal hearing can take anywhere from 2 to 4 months, depending on how quickly the administrative law judge makes their decision. This is another reason it's extremely important that you are well-represented in your initial hearing, so as to avoid confusion or delays in the ruling process and to also avoid the possibility of your claim being denied yet again.

Q. How many times can you appeal a workers' comp case?When it comes to appealing a workers' compensation claim in Colorado, there are several avenues to pursue. If you file an appeal but do not receive a favorable ruling from the Industrial Claim Appeals Office, you may choose to pursue further appeal with the Colorado Court of Appeals. This is a long process, but in some instances can be worth the time! To ensure that your claim is worth pursuing further appeal, you should discuss your situation with a professional workers' compensation lawyer.
