My Employer Has Denied My Claim, What Do I Do?
If you are denied benefits talk with your employer`s insurance carrier or your employer to find out why your claim is denied. Sharing information or obtaining medical records can often resolve disputes.
If the employer or insurance carrier denies the claim or refuses to make certain payments, this does not mean you are not entitled to benefits. It only means that the benefits will not be voluntarily paid. You should contact the Virginia Workers` Compensation Commission at the address or phone number listed below.
The Workers` Compensation Commission may hold a hearing, and the commission makes the final decision whether the employer must pay for the injury or disease.
