Worker's Compensation Appeals

The Workers’ Compensation Appeals Process

If you workers’ compensation claim has been denied, you have the right to appeal. In this situation, the services of an Atlanta workers’ compensation lawyer are invaluable. Being unfamiliar with the workers’ compensation laws and processes, it can be hard for you to identify what needs to be done in order to successfully appeal. Strict regulations govern how the situation must be addressed and it takes a skilled attorney to use the opportunity effectively.

After an appeal is lodged with the State Board of Workers’ Compensation, either side may request an oral presentation before the board. When this occurs, a date for oral argument will be set within 60 days of the filing of the appeal. Each side is only allowed a maximum of five minutes to present their argument, unless they receive specific permission to extend this time. It is therefore vital that you are represented by an attorney who can deliver a persuasive argument. The Appellate Division will base its final decision regarding your claim on the arguments heard and the record of your case.
