With law offices in Cedartown, we represent injured workers throughout Polk County and surrounding Georgia communities. If your claim has been denied, we are here to fight for you.
Why Do Claims Get Denied?
Insurance companies use a variety of tactics to improperly deny workers’ compensation claims. They often delay claims in an effort to run out the clock on injured workers. This is why it is important to get legal help early in the process. The sooner you act, the better your chances of obtaining a successful outcome.
Common arguments insurance companies use to unfairly deny claims include:
- The injury did not occur at work.
- The injury was pre-existing.
- The worker is exaggerating the extent of the injury.
- A certain type of treatment or diagnostic test is not necessary.

We are prepared to defend you at every stage of the process, from settlement negotiations to hearings and appeals before the State Board of Workers’ Compensation.
