Appealing a Denied Workers' Comp Claim

We offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your case and explain how these hearings work.
Your Employer and the BWC Will Be Represented. Will You?
Any party involved in a workers' comp claim − the employee, the employer or the BWC − can appeal the case to the Industrial Commission. At this point, your workers' compensation claim becomes a lawsuit over your right to participate in the state fund. Your case will be heard by an administrative law judge.
You can expect that your employer and the BWC, guided by their legal counsel, will testify against you at this hearing. To even the playing field, you need an experienced attorney representing your interests.
Workers' compensation is a complex body of law that has been interpreted over the years by many court rulings. Only an experienced workers' comp lawyer has the knowledge it takes to successfully advocate for your position.
