Iowa Workers’ Compensation: What Should I Do If My Claim Is Denied?

Click below to share this on social media:

The workplace should be a safe area where you can practice your trade. Employers should provide the appropriate training and safety measures to minimize the risk of accident and injury. Sometimes, however, through negligence or accident, injuries occur. Workers’ Compensation generally provides for the coverage of medical treatments and lost wages after such incidents. Occasionally, overzealous insurance companies deny claims and leave injured employees wondering where to turn for help.

If your workers' compensation claim has been denied, an experienced attorney may be able to help you.

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 was due to a pre-existing condition.
  • The injury did not occur while the employee was working.
  • The injury is not significant enough to warrant benefits.

We realize that the denial of your claim can add additional stress to an already difficult time. You may worry that your employer will want you to return to work sooner than you should or that your job may be at risk. Our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys will help to ensure that you receive the time and medical attention you require. In addition, we will defend you against retaliatory measures from your employer.

At this point, you may appeal and provide further information about the claim. An attorney will work with you to understand all the facts and details of your case and present them effectively when we resubmit your claim. Having an attorney on your side and a fully detailed claim may be all it takes to receive approval.

If you are once again denied, we will proceed to a hearing. We will relentlessly pursue an arbitration award from the Iowa Deputy Workers’ Compensation Commissioner. If all else fails, we will present arguments to the Iowa Workers’ Compensation Commissioner. Our workers’ compensation attorneys will prepare your claim and represent you effectively.
