My Claim for Workers’ Comp Benefits Was Denied, Now What?Many injured parties simply give up at this point. Instead of pursuing their rights, they accept defeat and drop the claim. If your workers' compensation claim has been denied, please take a moment and contact a personal injury attorney. We understand the complexities of Iowa law and will work with you throughout the claims process. If your employer's insurance company denies your claim, you are entitled to receive a reason for their denial. Claims are generally denied because:

- The injury did not occur while the employee was working.
- The injury is not significant enough to warrant benefits.
