Challenging Insurers After They Deny Your Claim
New Jersey has a no-fault workers’ compensation system, which means that an injured worker is entitled to benefits no matter who is to blame for the accident. However, even though fault does not need to be established, the claim itself does. That is a challenge in many cases as insurance carriers frequently deny claims.
At Law Offices of Kaplan & Kaplan, P.C., we regularly represent people whose workers’ compensation claims are denied. Whether an insurer is requesting more information to evaluate the merits of your claim or they deny your claim entirely, you can rely on our New Jersey lawyers to fight for the medical benefits, out-of-work benefits and disability award benefits you are entitled to. We have extensive experience representing people whose cases have been denied from places such as Essex County, Morris County, Bergen County and Passaic County.

Tactics Insurance Companies Use To Reject Claims
As you know, insurance companies focus on their bottom lines. One way to do this is by rejecting legitimate claims. Simply stated it saves them money. Workers’ compensation claims are no different. Insurance companies find many ways to reject claims that include:
- Alleging a lack of medical evidence
- Alleging the injury was pre-existing
- Alleging the injury occurred outside of the workplace
- Alleging the worker was not actually an employee at the time of the injury
We Respond Aggressively To Payment Delays And Claim Rejections
Even if a claim is not denied outright, insurance companies frequently delay payment by asking for more details about the accident and/or injury or by stating that the information submitted is incomplete.
Our New Jersey workplace injury lawyers know how to deal with these tactics. We will thoroughly investigate the events surrounding your accident and the reasons for the denied claim. We will respond promptly and effectively to any roadblocks encountered. Often, our skill and expertise help us anticipate potential holes in your case and get the issue resolved before your case is denied.
