An insurance carrier may deny your claim for workers’ compensation benefits on many grounds, including:
- your injury was not verified by a doctor to have led to a disability
- your injury was not work-related
- your injury or disability was the result of a pre-existing condition, and not worsened by the conditions or requirements of your job
- the necessary documents filed were incomplete or inaccurately filled out
- miscellaneous administrative problems
