Our firm also handles personal injury cases from car accidents, wrongful death, medical malpractice and more.
Workers Compensation Denials
An insurance carrier can deny a workers compensation claim on the basis that the injured person was not in the course and scope of their employment at the time of the injury. A good example of this denial is when someone has pre-existing medical conditions and the insurance carrier denies the claim saying the pre-existing conditions are the cause of the person’s injuries, not anything that occurred in the course and scope of employment. Certain medical conditions, like heart attacks, can also be denied as not occurring in the course and scope of employment.
An extent denial may occur when the claim has been accepted but the insurance carrier is only accepting a portion of the injuries. For example, the workers compensation insurance carrier accepts a back sprain but denies a herniated disc saying the herniated disc is not part of the compensable injury.The attorneys at Allison & Ward have been working together representing injured workers whose claims were denied in Austin since 1995.
