We help individuals appeal terminated benefits or denied claims before the Department of Labor & Industries (DLI) or before self-insured employers. From medical benefits to wage reimbursement, we will identify all potential issues which your workers' compensation claim presents.
You Can Appeal Workers' Compensation Denials or Stoppages
Approximately 70 percent of claims are administered entirely by the Washington Department of Labor & Industries, with the remaining percentage covered through self-insured employers who administer their own claims. How you discover denied or stopped benefits depends somewhat upon which agency is administering your claim:
- The DLI will send you written notice that your benefits will be stopped.
- Your self-insured employer may first stop your benefits, and notify you later.
- If you have received a benefit termination notice from the State or have stopped receiving benefits, attorney Sedney will assist you in pursuing a workers' compensation appeal. He will discuss your options with you, which include filing a request for reconsideration or a notice of appeal, and will do what is necessary to restore your benefits promptly.
We understand how confusing and upsetting this process may be for you. You do not have to face this alone. A knowledgeable attorney may be just what you need to reinstate your benefits. Put our experience to work for you. Contact us today for a free initial consultation.
