What do I do if my workers’ comp claim was denied?

Following these steps can help you get workers’ compensation benefits if your claim is denied:

  1. Read your denial letter.
    Your denial letter will include the official reasons why your claim was denied. In some cases, simple errors must be corrected in order to get your claim approved.
  2. Review your claim paperwork.
    Your claims may have been denied because injuries weren’t fully documented or because your doctors failed to fill out required forms to the best of their abilities.
  3. Check for administrative errors.
    The Oklahoma workers’ compensation system deals with high volumes of paperwork every day, and an administrative error may have caused your denial.
  4. Speak with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.
    Our lawyers know the Oklahoma workers’ compensation system, and we know what it takes to file a strong claim. We’ll ensure your paperwork is complete, accurate, and on time, so you have the best possible chance of getting your benefits.
