IT ISN'T THE END OF THE WORLD IF YOU ARE INITIALLY DENIED WORKERS’ COMPENSATION BENEFITS
Our Huntington Beach law firm is skilled at getting clients approved for treatment after the workers' compensation review process has denied their benefits or claim.
Under California workers' compensation law, an independent medical review or utilization review could lead to a denial of workers' compensation benefits for people who are seeking medical treatment. At Thomas Employment Law Group, Inc., our attorneys are experienced at crafting a strategy that works in your best interest which is built on our years of working in the workers' compensation arena. The denials by the insurance company may lead to a larger settlement or additional benefits provided to you.
DON'T BE AFRAID OF AN EXPEDITED HEARING
Many attorneys might shy away from an expedited hearing to get a ruling on a denied claim or a problem getting treatment. However, lawyer Dennis Thomas and his staff are not among them. Appealing denied workers' comp benefits is a passion for us, and it often proves to be a winning strategy for you.
When we file for an expedited hearing, even if it is a relatively minor issue, it lets opposing counsel and the insurance company know that we mean business. Our philosophy of "going to court to obtain benefits for you" dictates to the insurance company that we are prepared to fight for every benefit that you can receive. Because we care about you, our goal is to obtain the benefit that you need and most of the time this aggressive strategy can help us accomplish what is best for you, even if it involves qualified medical examinations.
If we are willing to fight to obtain even a month's treatment for an injured worker, that raises the chances that the other side will try to resolve any future issues without having to go through a hearing.
