Workers' Compensation Lawyer and Former Registered Nurse
Workers' compensation lawyer Janice Greening is a former registered nurse as well as an attorney. Her legal and medical background give her the knowledge required to respond effectively to denied claims. Workers' comp insurers often deny benefits for reasons such as:
- Lack of medical evidence
- Alleging that the injury was preexisting
- Claiming that the accident occurred outside of work
- Arguing that the injured worker is not actually an employee
Responding to a Denied Medical Benefits, Temporary Benefits, or Permanent Benefits
When they don't deny a claim outright, insurance companies may delay payment by requiring further details about the accident and injury or by saying that the reports or files you submitted were incomplete.
At the Law Firm of Janice M. Greening, LLC, we know how to deal with insurance companies. We will thoroughly investigate both the circumstances of your injury and the reasons for the denied claim. We will respond promptly and effectively to any barriers to your claim being approved.
If the insurance company completely denies your claim, workers' compensation appeals are available through the Colorado Office of Administrative Courts, the Industrial Claim Appeals Office, and the courts. We can represent you at these hearings and in court, if necessary.
