Workers' compensation benefits are awarded for injuries sustained on the job without proving the employer's negligence. Sometimes benefits can be denied for various reasons, such as a health care provider decided the injury was caused by a preexisting condition or the injury was not job related.
If your claim is denied, you should contact a Waipahu workers' compensation denial lawyer to appeal. The lawyer can ensure the paperwork was properly done, call witnesses to the accident, obtain independent medical opinions, and represent you at the appeals.
