Perhaps the most frustrating, frightening and shocking moment during your North Carolina workers' comp claim is the notice that your initial claim was denied by the insurance company. From time-to-time, the insurance company, after receiving the proper claims forms from your employer, will deny your claim, perhaps due to a lack of documentation or some other issue.
Fortunately, you appeal. It's at this point that many residents contact the experienced workers' comp claim attorneys at White & Stradley, PLLC. They tried filling out the paperwork and acquiring the needed information themselves, only to see their claim denied. Our attorneys can help with your appeal.
An early part of the process includes going through a mediation. Our workers' compensation attorneys understand the mediation process. We know what paperwork is required and how to document your injury or illness.
In some circumstances, mediation proves unsuccessful, and your appeal is given a hearing by the North Carolina Industrial Commission. Here, your workers' comp claim will be judged in a setting that is very similar to a trial. Having an attorney on your side at this hearing is highly recommended.
