When you file a compensation claim, it may be approved or denied. If the claim is approved, it does not mean that it will be paid right away. The insurance company will do everything in its power to ensure the claim is not paid or at least delayed. If it is denied, you do not have to settle for the insurance company’s decision. You can challenge it by going to a Virginia Beach workers compensation lawyer who can work out the kinks and determine if your case is worthy of a favorable decision or settlement. If it is, you can appeal the insurance company’s decision and ask for a hearing with the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission. And your Va Beach work comp lawyer can help you take your case to trial.
