What Can I Do If My Workers' Comp Claim Is Denied?

The denial of a workers' compensation claim can be very stressful. Without the benefits provided through your employer's workers' compensation policy you may be unable to pay the medical bills and other expenses relating to your workplace injuries. A workers' comp claim denial could also prevent you from having any source of income during the time it takes for you to recover from your injuries. Our attorneys understand that one of the main reasons a person try to find a good job or long-term career is so that he or she can earn the income necessary to have a decent standard of living.

Without a sufficient source of income a person has no means with which to buy or rent a home, buy or lease a car, pay monthly utility bills and other household expenses, feed his or her family and fulfill additional financial obligations. We also understand that a good job can provide a person with a sense of security and purpose and that a workplace accident can cause all of that to change at a moment's notice.

If you have had your workers' comp claim denied, we advise you contact Fendon Law Firm, P.C. to obtain legal counsel from a skilled Phoenix workers' compensation attorney right away. The Industrial Commission of Arizona demands that certain requirements are met before workers' compensation benefits will be awarded.
