What You Can Do To Appeal A Denied Workers’ Compensation Claim

If you have suffered a serious injury at the workplace, workers' compensation is a critical resource. These benefits can keep you afloat while you are fighting off medical bills and lost income if you are no longer able to work.

Receiving a denial from a workers' compensation insurer can feel hopeless. Here at The King Law Firm, PLLC, we want you to know that your claim doesn't stop with a denial in Mississippi. Our attorney can help you fight to get the compensation you deserve by appealing a denied claim.

What The Appeals Process Looks Like

While some people can obtain workers' compensation benefits without an attorney, the appeals process is an entirely different game. Mounting a successful appeal is difficult, making it crucial that you have an experienced workers' compensation lawyer in your corner.

The first step of the appeals process is filing a petition with the workers' compensation commission. Once you have filed your petition, you will need to present your case to a judge at an administrative hearing.

The hearing is where you will need to present any evidence and documentation that supports your position. If this appeal fails, then you can start the process over and file an appeal to the Full Commission.

No matter where you are in the process, attorney Jacob King is prepared to help you get the benefits you and your family need.
