What Happens If My Claim Is Denied?
You have the option to appeal your neck injury claim if it is denied for any insurance by the insurance company of your employer. Our Atlanta workers’ compensation attorneys are highly skilled in this area, possess strong mediation and litigation practice. With a background as insurance and employer defense lawyers, we also know how the other side is thinking and can use this insight to assist with your case.
Since most injuries cannot wait for a final determination by an insurer or a hearing before the Board of Workers’ Compensation, an employee can move forward with receiving medical treatment while he or she awaits the outcome of the claim. It is important, however, to ensure that you seek treatment from physicians who are authorized by your employer. Your employer may provide you with a list of approved physicians from which to choose, or it may instead give you the name of a Workers’ Compensation Managed Care Organization to use. If you do not use one of the options provided by your employer, you may be denied coverage or reimbursement for your medical expenses.
