Staten Island Workers' Compensation Appeals Lawyer

Denied Workers' Compensation Claims

There are numerous obligations, process steps, filing requirements and legal contingencies involved with workers' compensation. When a claim is denied, these complications only increase. The stress and complication of handling your workers' compensation claim on your own is significant, compounded by the increased risk of making an error that could result in the loss of your benefits.

You have enough to worry about after suffering a serious work-related injury. Let our Staten Island workers' compensation appeals attorneys handle the legal process for you, so you can focus on recovering and providing for your family.

At the law firm of Jonathan H. Poznansky, Attorney at Law, we represent clients who have suffered serious work-related injuries in the Staten Island and Brooklyn areas (including clients who commute from New Jersey to work in New York). If you have suffered an illness or injury that renders you unable to work, our lawyers will answer your workers' compensation questions, help determine benefits availability, help you avoid having your claim denied and, if your claim has already been denied, help you through the appellate process.

Causes For Denials Of Workers' Compensation Claims

There are a number of errors that can result in the delay or outright denial of your workers' comp claim:

  • Procedural errors: Filing with the wrong office or failing to file within the legal time limit are common examples of procedural errors that can result in the denial of workers' comp claims.
  • Medical errors: In many cases, otherwise valid claims are denied because the examining physician did not use the exact specific language required by the workers' compensation authorities.
  • Technical errors: There are numerous other technical issues that can jeopardize an otherwise valid claim

Our law firm brings nearly 30 years of legal experience to every case we handle, including attorney Peter Malloy's 10 years of experience representing employers in workers' compensation claims. With our understanding of both sides of the issues involved, as well as our experience with the laws and procedures of workers' comp, we help clients through every step of the process. If your workers' comp claim has been denied, we can help you, but by contacting us right away, we can probably help you get everything in order so you can receive your benefits the first time and won't even need to appeal.
