Workers’ Compensation Denial Appeals
Fighting for Your Right to Compensation
Few things can be more disheartening than receiving a denial for your workers’ compensation claim. Having represented injured workers throughout the state of Maryland for more than 50 years, our Maryland personal injury attorneys understand how much injured workers and their families depend on these benefits. During these difficult times, we encourage all those who have had their claims denied to remain positive and to seek the experienced legal assistance and support that Peter Angelos Law can provide.
If you or your loved one has recently had a workers’ compensation claim denied, you have the right to appeal the decision with the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission (WCC). In order to file an appeal, you must submit a formal claim with the WCC to request a hearing, during which you will have the opportunity to state your case and the reasons why your denial should be overturned. Requests to appeal must be made within 30 days of the denial. The Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission is only responsible for processing and adjudicating – or making a decision about – filed claims and appeals. Once these claims have been approved, employers or their insurers will be responsible for making the payments.
