Why Workers’ Compensation Claims are Denied

If your workers’ comp claim was denied, the first thing to do is figure out why. This should be explained in the denial letter. While you could be denied for simply not meeting eligibility requirements, you may appeal the decision if there was an error present in your denial.

The following are common reasons why workers’ compensation benefits are denied:

  • Injury was not reported on time
  • Claim was not filed in a timely manner
  • Injury is not compensable
  • Employer disputes claim
  • No medical treatment provided after injury
  • Insufficient evidence that the injury is work-related
