What If I Am Denied Workers’ Comp Benefits?
If you or a loved one has been denied workers’ compensation benefits in Oklahoma by a workers’ comp insurance adjuster on a viable claim, you have options.
Receiving a denial of a benefits claim does not mean you are not entitled to benefits. It just means there is more to the process.
What Can You Do?
If you have been denied benefits, you can file an appeal within 15 days of the previous decision. A hearing will be scheduled where a three-judge panel will reconsider your case.
Given the short time frame to appeal, hiring a dedicated team of lawyers who understand the appeals process and can advocate for you at your hearing and protect your rights is important.
