At Cardinal Law Partners, Kristin Henriksen has experience representing individuals in South Carolina workers’ compensation claims and has helped claimants whose claims have been denied by insurance companies and employers. Claims are sometimes denied for reasons that do not hold up under the law.
Claims get denied for several reasons. Some of the more common reasons are outlined below:
In South Carolina, denied claims can be disputed before the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission. The Workers’ Compensation Commission hears disputes and decided on issues between the parties. Initially, claims are heard before a single South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commissioner. Appeals after a hearing are taken to a three member panel at the Full Commission. Finally, decision from the Commission can be appealed to the South Carolina Court of Appeals.
An attorney can help an injured worker with a denied claim initially negotiate the issues with the insurance company. The attorney then can represent the injured worker before the Commission and then the Court of Appeals.
