Riverside Workers' Compensation Appeal Attorney
When a workers' compensation claim is denied for any reason, the injured worker may have the right to file an appeal. A workers' compensation appeal is filed with the California Workers' Compensation Appeals Board, which is responsible for reviewing decisions made by workers' compensation administrative law judges of the Division of Workers' Compensation (DWC). The Workers' Compensation Appeals Board is a judicial body consisting of seven members. An injured worker whose claim has been denied may file a Petition for Reconsideration with the Appeals Board in order to seek a different outcome. This is an important undertaking, as it is possible that an error will be made or something overlooked and a workers' compensation claim therefore wrongfully denied.

Filing an Appeal for Workers' Compensation
Filing an appeal is important if you are to have a second chance at reaching a positive outcome for your Riverside workers' compensation claim. For example, an issue may have arisen regarding the value of your claim based upon your wages or disability, but these may have been incorrectly calculated. Your claim may have been denied entirely on the grounds that it was not work-related. Whatever the specific situation, a workers' compensation appeal attorney at our law firm can help.
