Process of Appealing a Denial
If you have been denied benefits, you will receive a letter stating how you can appeal the denial. You should carefully read the letter to ensure that no information is missed. Speak with the party that denied the claim, either your employer or the workers' compensation insurance carrier, for clarity and further information about the denial. After the mistake has been cleared up, your claim can be accepted. If this is not the case, you may want to proceed with the appeal process.
The appeal process includes a hearing before the North Carolina Industrial Commission. You can benefit greatly from having the representation of a knowledgeable Concord workers' compensation appeals lawyer during this hearing. A judge will preside over the proceeding, and the firm's attorneys can prepare you for testimony to assert your rights to compensation.
