What should I do if my workers’ compensation claim is denied? 

If your workers’ compensation claim is denied, there are several steps you can take to appeal the decision and protect your rights: 

Review the reasons for the denial: Read the notice of denial carefully to understand the reasons for the denial. This will help you identify any errors or misunderstandings that may have led to the denial. 

File an appeal: You have the right to file an appeal if your claim is denied. The specific process for appealing a workers’ compensation claim denial in Utah can vary depending on the circumstances, but generally involves filing a written Application for Hearing with the Utah Labor Commission. 

Gather additional evidence: If your claim was denied due to a lack of evidence, you may be able to gather additional medical records, witness statements, or other evidence to support your claim. 

Consult with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney: An experienced workers’ compensation attorney can help you understand your rights and options, navigate the appeals process, and advocate on your behalf to ensure that you receive the benefits you are entitled to under the law. 

Attend hearings and provide testimony: If your appeal is scheduled for a hearing, be sure to attend the hearing and provide testimony to support your claim. An attorney can help you prepare for the hearing and present your case effectively. 

It is important to take action quickly if your workers’ compensation claim is denied, as there may be deadlines for filing an appeal or providing additional evidence. If you have questions or concerns about your workers’ compensation claim, it is recommended to consult with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.
