How Can Workers’ Compensation Claims Be Disputed?

When you’ve been injured at work, you might file a workers’ compensation claim to recover what you’re owed from your employer. Workers’ compensation claims don’t require you to prove your employer was at fault, which is why they’re so important to file. Even if you were partially at fault for your injuries that you suffered on the job, you can still file for workers’ comp and recover financially.

However, sometimes your claim can be disputed. This could happen for a number of reasons that you should know about. This can be confusing and make you feel like you aren’t sure how to proceed with your claim. Having a workers’ compensation lawyer on your side can help you feel more secure in your claim and can answer all of the questions you might have when it’s been disputed.

Let’s take a look at the different ways workers’ compensation claims can be disputed.
