When an Employer Denies a St. Louis Work Comp Claim


Can an employer dispute a workers’ compensation claim?

st louis work comp benefits deniedMany workers are not aware of their rights and some workers are afraid to file a work comp claim. Every worker should know and understand the benefits that they are entitled to under the workers’ compensation system if they become injured at work.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits

Injured workers are entitled to:

An injured employee may be denied one or more of these benefits because either the employer or the insurance company disputes the claim. Any employer that has a number of claims will pay higher premium rates for the insurance policy. To keep the rates low, an employer may not report all injuries or may simply deny the facts that are stated by the employee in the claim. An injured employee may hesitate to file a work comp claim for fear of losing their job.

Compensation for Work-Related Injuries

Employees are not always aware that they may be entitled to more compensation after receiving medical treatment. Some employees are not aware of all work comp benefits that are available. They simply accept the benefits that they are provided, without knowing whether or not they are receiving the benefits that they actually deserve. If you have been injured at work, a St. Louis workers’ compensation lawyer can help you recover your rightful compensation. Call The Law Office of James M.
