3 Ways to Protect Yourself from Workers Compensation Claim Denial

If you are out of work due to an injury that occurred in the workplace, you are probably working with workers compensation to get the money that you are owed. It is important to protect yourself while this is going on, however, so that you can help prevent your claim from being denied. These are three things that you need to do to help prevent a denial.

1. Listen to Your Doctor

Make sure that you listen to your doctor in regards to your injury. Take care of yourself, avoid working until you are medically cleared to do so, and make sure that you go to all of your appointments.

2. Hire a Lawyer

To help ensure that your interests are protected and to help expedite your case, it’s a good idea to work with a workers compensation lawyer who understands the law and can help you get paid. Mike Lewis Attorneys is one great option that you can trust.

3. Be Careful What You Say and Do

Be careful about what you say and do in the days, weeks and months after your injury. Avoid talking about the accident with others, and don’t post any pictures or comments on social media that can make you look bad, such as comments that could be taken the wrong way or photographs of you doing physical activities that you shouldn’t be doing after your accident. Think about how you are perceived in regards to your accident when dealing with the general public.

Don’t let little things get in the way of your workers compensation claim. Follow these tips to help prevent a denial, and contact us at Mike Lewis Attorneys for representation that you can count on.
