If you've been hurt at work, you likely know that you need to file for workers' compensation. You make a claim through your employer in most cases, and then the workers' compensation insurer reviews your case. In some cases, the claim is denied, even though you have a legitimate injury. Why is that, and what can you do?
If you wait too long to file, you could have your claim denied. Typically, you have no more than 90 days to file your first claim for an injury. If you wait longer than that, the insurance company may deny your claim stating that the injury may not be related to your workplace accident.
